COVID-19 Procedures In Place

A new set of policies and procedures, following the guidelines and recommendations set out by the provincial health officials, has been developed to minimize the risk of COVID–19 for employees and patrons. For your safety and those around you, these procedures must be followed in order to keep the pool open.

New protocols include screening by lifeguards prior to entry, physical distancing markers, admission by donation and a maximum capacity of 18 patrons in the pool at one time. Groups of 18 will be limited to 45 minutes in the pool, then lifeguards will ask them to leave through a secondary exit before a new group of 18 is permitted.

  • If you are sick, stay home
  • Shower at home before coming to the pool

  • Wait in line until it is your turn
  • Physical distance of 2 meters at all times
  • Do not share equipment
