The most significant changes for the GHCP Pool in Phase 3 are that “free swim” is now permitted, and there may be more than 3 swimmers in a single lap lane.
Starting July 1st, we will combine the three “free exercise” lanes from phase 2 into a single “free swim” area. We will maintain two lanes for lap swimming only.
The reservation system is unchanged. Reservations are not required, but each property may have one future reservation each day for up to seven days in advance. We take reservations for the lap lanes, exercise areas, and the wading pool, but not for the “free swim” area.
The 10 foot social distancing guideline remains in effect both in the water and on the deck. And we ask that masks be worn at check in, in the restrooms, and in other situations when social distancing from people not in your household isn’t possible.
Lastly, please remember that we are operating with fewer staff than normal, and with (obviously) a more demanding set of protocols. Most pools in the area chose not to open. Our goal is to provide members the greatest access possible consistent with safety for all of us and good stewardship of our resources.
Please enjoy, and help us keep you and your neighbors safe!
