During these unprecedented times, there are a few changes to pool operations as well as some additional considerations we all need to extend to our neighbors.
For the weekend of May 30-31, the pool will be “Swim At Your Own Risk”. There will be no lifeguards on duty until Monday, June 1.
The Maximum Pool Occupancy is 64 people. There will only be 64 chairs placed on the pool deck. If those are occupied, the pool is full and you are asked to come back at a later time.
During peak/high occupancy times, we are asking that all residents limit their time at the pool to 2 hours. If you have been at the pool for two hours and there are lots of empty chairs, please feel free to stay. However, if the pool starts to get crowded – or is crowded – please leave after two hours.
CDC Guidance is slightly unclear as to how Covid-19 survives on surfaces. Efforts will be made to disinfect tables and bathroom areas hourly, but please feel free to bring your own sanitizing wipes and use as you feel comfortable. This will increase waste at the pool, so please be sure to place your trash in the receptacles.
The Board considered utilization of a Reservation System on our website, but feared this could cause confusion among residents. It would also require the Board to hire staff to monitor the front gate and pool deck area for compliance with the registrations. We are trusting that our neighbors will exhibit personal responsibility and neighborly consideration to allow us all to enjoy the pool freely. If there are abuses of time or occupancy, we will be forced to close the pool while we migrate to the Online Reservation System.
Please keep in mind that CDC Guidelines regarding Social Distancing are expected to be observed at all times. It is recommended that pool toys/floats/etc. not be shared.
We understand that everyone is tired of being isolated. We will all be happy to be outside, but please remember the importance of Social Distancing and remember to be mindful of others who want to use the pool. We typically don’t have large crowds at our pool, but this is not a typical Summer.
Again – If you’ve been there for 2 hours and chairs are running low – go home and give someone else a chance to get outside.
If you have been or feel sick, or exhibit any of the symptoms associated with Covid-19, please stay at home.
- You are not allowed to bring guests at this time.
- Please use a towel on your chair.
- Only 1 table per family.
- Parents MUST accompany your children.
- Use common sense when using the bathroom, 2 stalls, 2 people, unless of course a parent is with a little one.
- Practice social distancing at all times, in and out of the pool.
- Be respectful and courteous to your neighbors. When your 2 hour time slot is up, please follow instruction of the lifeguards and vacate the pool area.
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death.
By visiting the Park Forest pool and amenity areas, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
The health and safety of our Residents and their Guests is ultimately their own responsibility. The HOA and the Board of Directors assume No Responsibility.
Residents or their Guests can have no claim against the HOA and the Board of Directors for any accident or injury. The HOA and the Board of Directors are not responsible for the loss or damage to personal property.
Have a safe and happy summer!!
