Pool Opening June 6th – New COVID 19 Pool Guidelines and Rules

Dear Members,

We want to start by thanking you for your patience the past two weeks as BOD, staff and Pool Committee have worked toward having everything in place for our opening day.  That day will be Saturday, June 6.

Using PA guidance to follow the CDC Considerations for Public Pools, Hot Tubs, and Water Playgrounds During COVID-19 in the yellow and green phases of the state’s reopening plan, we have developed the attached LHPOA Pool Facility Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) which we will follow in the yellow phase. These are to be followed in addition (or in place of, as appropriate) to our regular Pool Facility Rules (also attached). Thank you to our Pool Manager, Beth Raub, as well as the Pool Committee for your time, dedication and hard work on finalizing these SOPs. We ask that you take the time to read and review these SOPs prior to coming to the Pool Facility so you are aware of the changes in procedure from previous years.

As referenced in the SOPs, all pool patrons will need to reserve their time at the pool during the yellow phase. This can be done by using Sign-Up Genius here, or calling the pool office during their business hours at (717)334-7242. More details on the sign-up process can be found in the attached SOPs.

Also referenced in the SOPs are the attached waivers which all pool patrons must sign for themselves as well as any minors they are the parent/guardian of prior to their first visit to the Pool Facility. Please note that if you have guests that are minors, their parents must sign the waiver. These forms can be printed, signed and a brought with you. They are also available at the check-in area. Please see the SOPs for the entire check-in process to access the Pool Facility beginning June 6.

We fully recognize that the guidelines outlined in our SOPs will make for a very different pool season.  Please know that the safety of our community members and pool staff are our number one priority. We also recognize that as we open the Pool facility and “live” within these processes and procedures, adjustments may need to be mad Covid-19 Pool Facility Guidelines Standard Operating Procedures for Members During the Yellow Phase.  We are committed to constantly evaluating and refining processes as we are able within the state guidelines. Your polite and constructive feedback is welcomed and can be emailed to pool@lakeheritage.org .You can also submit feedback to the Pool Committee Chair, Biz Gomer, at bgomer@lakeheritage.org so that can be shared with the Pool Committee. Anyone interested in joining the Pool Committee should also contact Biz.
