Dear Fellow Members,
As part of our continued commitment to provide transparency in regards to the Swimming Hole, we do have some news to share:
The Good News:
As part of Governor Cooper’s Executive Order surrounding Phase II Reopening plans, there was a specific clause allowing Indoor and Outdoor Pools to open with restrictions*. As such, we plan to open the Swimming Hole to members on Saturday, May 30th. This is the earliest we can open with adequate training, staffing, and overall preparation. The sign-up system information will be sent out early next week when you can begin booking your slots to enjoy the pool!
The Fine Print* :
We are currently working with officials and our management company to determine the maximum number of people we can accommodate. Per the Executive Order, we can operate at 50% capacity, but there are additional restrictions. These restrictions are around the number of people that can be in the water at a given time based off pool square footage. We are working with the state currently to better understand those guidelines and how they balance with public gathering limits.
The Next Steps:
Be on the lookout for our next communication coming next week. In that communication, we will distribute the link for the sign-up page, allowing you to begin booking your slots for the pool season. In addition, we will clearly lay out all of the safety precautions we will be implementing as part of the reopening. As always, you have our commitment that we will adjust as we learn more and gain feedback. The Phase II executive order runs until June 26th. At that point, we will evaluate our next steps to allow members to enjoy the pool while adhering to all safety guidelines.
Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility. Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions or feedback. These are my first few weeks as pool president and I look forward to a) getting us through this period and b) talking with everyone in depth to understand how I can help make the Swimming Hole the best experience for you and your family.
