|Dear Windyrush Members, |
We are very excited to announce that pool season officially began Saturday, May 23! Governor Roy Cooper reported that North Carolina will move into Safer At Home Phase 2 of lifting COVID-19 restrictions on Friday, May 22 at 5 pm. After two weeks in Phase 1, the state’s overall key indicators remain stable but the continued increases in daily case counts signal a need to take a more modest step forward in Phase 2 than originally envisioned. Certain businesses will be open at limited capacity with other requirements and recommendations including pools at 50% capacity with social distancing and cleaning requirements. As we navigate Phase 2, we will have some procedures in place to ensure the safety of our Members and staff.
We will send weekly updates as we learn more about the guidelines set by the state and county. Our 50% pool capacity is 300 including staff. At 300 person capacity, the Board does not believe going to “shifts” will be necessary, although the Board reserves the right to implement sign-up “shifts” in the future. If we do reach capacity, we may ask Members who have been at the pool most of the day to yield to new arrivals. It is extremely important that all Members follow the below guidelines set by the Board, in accordance with state recommendations.
We know some of these may be inconvenient, but we also know that these guidelines can help us get through the coming weeks with hopes of updating our procedures and open to full operation capacity soon. We thank you for your patience and understanding at the beginning of our season.
Currently 2 guests per membership.
Members and staff temperatures will be taken at check-in. If temperature is 100 degrees or higher will not be able to enter the pool that day. Members are required to check in at the check-in window.
