New COVID-Related Pool Info & Policies

  • You, and everyone you registered, will need to check in with a Goodman Aquatic Center staff member at the admission window when you arrive for the open swim session. Everyone’s name must be on a list to enter the pool area due to capacity limits.
  • Masks will not be required on the pool deck.
  • Masks will be required while waiting in line to check-in, upon entering and exiting the facility, and in the restrooms.
  • Pool attendees are encouraged to follow six feet social distancing on the pool deck/grass area and in the water, as much as possible, if not in the same household.
  • We will NOT have pool deck chairs for use for summer 2021; only a set number of picnic tables and round tables with attached benches. Each will have an umbrella or be under the pergola for some shade.
  • You may bring in your own lawn/beach chair for our grassy and pool deck areas.
  • For Summer 2021, we encourage members to come in suits, ready to swim. Minimizing the use of locker rooms for changing will help with entrance and exit flow, and maximize your time at the pool.
  • Showers will be available to rinse off prior to entering the pool and after swimming.
  • If you use the locker rooms and showers after swimming, you must be completely out of the locker room/restroom when the whistle blows to clear the pool at the end of the session (2:00 pm), so please watch the time and plan accordingly.
  • We will additionally have tents available for changing in or out of your suit at the pool.
  • Exiting the facility after a swim session will be through the large rolling gate near the concession stand, not the restrooms. You will only enter the pool area from the restrooms upon arrival for each swim session.
