Q: What should I expect when I arrive at the pool?

A: When swimmers arrive for their scheduled swim they will need to complete a COVID screening, once you pass the screening staff will let you know what lane you are scheduled for (lane swim only) and direct you to proceed through the change rooms and bring all your belongings with you onto the pool deck. Staff will alert you when your swim time is over and you will be given approx 5 minutes to gather your things and exit in order that staff may disinfect before the next group of swimmers arrive.

Q: Will showers and lockers be available for use?

A: Lockers will NOT be available to patrons. We ask you only bring what is absolutely necessary and bring all belongings onto the pool deck with you.
