PLEASE do not come to these facilities if you or anyone in your party has COVID 19 symptoms or has been exposed to anyone that has had symptoms in the previous fourteen (14) days.

In an effort to accommodate as many pool-goers as possible, and to allow staff to clean the facilities, entry passes will be sold for 3-hour sessions.  Passes go on sale at the pool each day, 30 minutes prior to the posted opening times.  Passes will be sold for each day only on that day.  Passes will be limited to a 3-hour session A or session B, good only for the date stamped on the pass.  No punch cards will be sold this year.

Due to staffing limitations and COVID precautions, there are a few other rules the 2020 pool season. No private parties or reservations will be allowed.  There will be no lap swim times and no swimming lessons. No family nights are scheduled. All pool furniture will be removed from both the Washington and Doug Russell facilities.  No outside chairs are allowed. If any citizen needs special accommodations, they should speak to a manager at the site.
