The Normandy Pool Board met Saturday to discuss the pool reopening. Here is a summary of the decisions and rules that will be in place at the opening:
The plan is for the pool’s opening day to be between Saturday, June 13 and Monday, June 15th - We will have an update early next week with our opening date - but it is coming soon.
At the start, the pool will be open on a set schedule 5 days/week, in recognition of our smaller guard staff. We are finalizing the details and will send the schedule early next week with the opening date. Those days are Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
Only 100 guests may be on the grounds at one time (in addition to 5 staff members).
We will welcome folks first come, first served. There will be an adult swim at the 45 of every hour for 15 min to provide staff extra time to clean high touch areas.
We plan to begin the season with only allowing members to have access to the pool (although you will be allowed to use your traditional 5 guest passes for non members). This means there will be no walk up or day passes sold to the pool. As the season progresses and we get a feel for use this may change.
All pool attendees will be required to wear a mask when entering the facility to interact with the front desk staff.
The slide and diving board will be open, with social distancing rules in place.
Members will need to bring their own chairs, the pool will not be providing chairs this summer.
There will not be any pavilion/clubhouse rentals, adult swim or vending machines. We will also not be providing swim lessons or water aerobics this year.
As the summer progresses, we believe these rules will also evolve - for example, as we get more guards, we may be able to open for more days or, if first-come, first served is not working, we may implement a scheduling system. Please be patient with us. We look forward to your respectful feedback about how the process is going. Thank you for your understanding as we navigate these new waters! Your NEMRD Board
