OUR POOL AND CAMPGROUND ARE NOW OPEN!
Updated: Jun 12, 2020
We are very much concerned for the safety and well-being of our customers and employees.
We have adopted the following guidelines from various sources to help protect the safety of our employees and all those who choose to avail themselves of our services at this time.
1. Only come to our facility if you are healthy and have not been exposed recently to anyone who is ill.
2. Wash hands frequently with soap and water, or use sanitizers provided. This is especially important after using toilet facilities, attending to those with special needs (e.g. changing babies’ diapers), or before preparing and eating food. We also recommend bringing your own bags to hold your belongings, where possible, and washing hands before leaving premises.
3. To help maintain social distancing, avoid sitting or congregating on the steps or ladders around the pool. Observers, please self-distance on observation benches.
4. To the extent possible, try to stay at least 6 feet away from other swimmers who are not members of your own immediate family.
5. While ultra-violet light (sunshine) helps combat the virus, maintain as much distance as possible from other campers and picnickers to avoid possible contamination outdoors.
6. Always utilize cough and sneeze etiquette, inside or out. Sneeze into shoulder or elbow, or into a tissue when appropriate – then discard tissue into trash receptacle and wash hands.
We have increased the concentration of chlorine in our pool, and will sanitize frequently-touched surfaces in the pool and restroom areas on a regular basis.
Senior Swim: We recognize the therapeutic needs of our Senior Citizens, who are in the high-risk category. With appropriate precautions, we have resumed our Senior Swim and Arthritis Exercise Classes on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10 a.m. to Noon. For their protection, appropriate distancing is encouraged, and NO CHILDREN WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE POOL OR POOL AREA DURING THIS TIME!
Swim Lessons: Due to the difficulty of maintaining appropriate distancing during the teaching process, lessons will be suspended for the summer.

*From the cdc.org website, Q&A page:
Can the COVID-19 virus spread through pools and hot tubs?
There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.

While we want to make our facility available to those who choose to use it at this time, each of you has a responsibility to preserve your own health and that of others. Do your homework so you know the risks, and follow preventive measures!
