POOL UPDATES FOR MARCH 22
Pool Hours

The Task Force and DPH have made changes to the covid prevention plans we have been following for the last few months.  We have adjusted to some of the newly allowed activities but are still enforcing some guidelines to provide an additional layer of safety.

We are still accepting Orange residents and Orange Town Pool members only.

Please continue to sign in and receive your health screening in the lobby. 

The locker room should have no more than 8 people at any time.

The handicap accessible shower will be available to those in need after swimming and may be used to rinse off on the way into the pool. 

Alternating showers will be available for use in the main shower area of the locker rooms.  Please be mindful of those waiting.

Lockers will be available in a spaced arrangement.   All your personal items must be secured in a locker.  Do not leave any items on the benches or in the changing stalls.  Items left out will be put in the Lost and Found area.
 You may continue to bring your items to the pool deck in the spaced locations on the benches.

Two people (more if from the same family) may share a lap lane at this time.  While sharing a lane, please swim continuously or hop out to rest if necessary.

If you are using a walking lane, please maintain a 6-foot distance from other walkers at all times.

MASKS ARE REQUIRED WHILE WALKING ON THE DECK

We are still not allowing spectators on the pool deck or in the balcony.  

The balcony will be open for one family member (and children) during Park and Recreation swim lessons only.  

There is still a 1:1 ratio for adults and non-swimming children.  All children wishing to swim without a parent or the 1:1 ratio must pass the swim test (one full length of the pool without help or stopping).
 
   IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS, PLEASE TALK TO SUE AT THE SIGN IN DESK.




SWIM LESSONS ARE BACK!

Swim lessons will begin on a limited schedule with very limited availability.  Each class will be taught as a private lesson, with just your child and an instructor.  There may be more instructor/student pairs in the pool at the same time but pairs will not mix.   Parents will not be allowed on the pool deck during the class.  Only one member of the family may be in the balcony during your child’s class.  Patrons in the balcony must be
seated and spaced accordingly. If the instructor has to cancel a class for any reason, you will receive a credit for the missed class. Substitute
 instructors will not be used.   All participants and family members must wear a mask until the lesson is ready to begin.  Instructors and students will not wear masks during class.  Due to limited space, only one lesson per child will be allowed until the program starts, more may be available if space allows, at that time.    

These classes are not for advanced or intermediate swimmers.  
The lessons are for BEGINNERS; children 3 years and above that will participate without a parent present on the deck. You are registering for an available spot in the session. The instructor will teach to the level of your child.
 
 More advanced lessons will resume when all the Covid restrictions have been lifted throughout the facility.
