COVID 19 Update

Since the beginning of May when Governor Wolf announced the first set of counties would be moving into the Yellow phase, the Board of Directors has been seeking information and guidance regarding the rules to open our pool and beaches.  There was no information available to us.  We have been making plans to put procedures in place, but without definitive guidance as to what procedures would be necessary we could not finalize our plans.

This afternoon, the Wolf administration released "Summer Camp and Recreation Guidance" that includes information about safely opening our swimming areas.  With this playbook in place, we can now prepare to implement the necessary procedures.  This will require both increased staffing and supplies.

It is our intention to open the pool and beaches as soon as we are ready.  We are working to put everything (and everyone) in place to comply with the recommended procedures.  Please have a little patience; we will update the membership as soon as we know when the facilities will be opening.
