Just last night, the governor extended the stay-at-home order for Montgomery County to June 4. Once the stay at home order is lifted, we will continue to follow his color-coded 3 phase plan for the re-opening of our state. It’s similar to a traffic light: red for stop, yellow for caution, and green for go.
What Does This Mean For Our Pool?
We are currently in the “red” meaning no large gatherings, so we cannot open.
We are planning to open the pool June 15th.
When will we hit green?
NBC10 reported, “Wolf’s reopening plan said a region or county will need to average fewer than 50 new positive cases of the virus per 100,000 residents for 14 days in order to begin moving out from under his statewide lockdown.”
Once we get the green light, our state will reopen and pandemic restrictions will be lifted, aside from federal or state health guidelines in place.
During an online press briefing, State Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine fielded questions about reopening summer activities, and said there’s nothing to suggest that COVID-19 is spread via pools, lakes or other bodies of water.
Will the pool open this summer?
As soon as we hit “green” we will be ready to open. It has been months of preparation. You should know that we, collectively with many other local private pools, are in contact with Dr. Valerie Arkoosh, Chair of the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners.
Should I pay for my membership?
Yes! In order to be prepare in regards to staffing and inventory, we need a count of total members. Membership deadline is May 20.
What if the pool opens late?
We are planning to open the pool June 15.
If the pool opens later than June 15, please know we will prorate your dues according to the number of days/hours the pool is open each summer and subtract any time missed.
What if the pool doesn’t open?
You will receive a refund.
