LOGAN — Logan’s Jim Wood Aquatic Center will be open by July 5.
That is according to Center Pool Board Chairman Joe Esser. It will be open Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays from 1-3 p.m. and 3:30-5:30 p.m.
Five full-time and six part-time lifeguards are working at the pool as well as six front end/social distancing employees.
"Patrons must display a personal responsibility in regards to the COVID pandemic," said Esser. "Do not come to the pool if you are ill or show symptoms. You must be respectful of others and their health concerns."
Patrons enter through the main entrance and exit through the gate on the handicap ramp. Admission is $3 per person, per day.
The capacity will be 50 people at a time, first come, first serve. And the managers will do their best to bring in 50 new/different people for the second two-hour span than those who have already been at the pool from 1-3 p.m.
While the diving board will be open for, the slide will not be, according to Esser.
“Social distancing will be enforced,” said Esser. “You must bring your own chairs and water. No food allowed. No balls, water toys, floaties or shareable items [either].”
But, patrons may have their children wear puddle jumpers or life vests, Esser added.
Also, patrons must be six feet apart from other family groups. No playing tag, shark or another other similar games.
Children who are 10 years of age and under need to be with an adult 18 years of age old or older.
The decking will be marked as to where patrons sit or set up chairs. And finally, the women's restroom will be open as well as the family restroom. Other rules will be posted.
