Pool Opening Date and Tennis Update

Sent by Vermack President (Krull, Jeff) on 5/16/2020. This announcement was emailed to all users

It's hot and sunny, so when will the pool open?

We are targeting June 1st, but there are still several dependencies to meet this date.

 The core dependencies to open our pool remain:

  1. Cleared - State orders – On May 12, 2020, Governor Kemp issued Executive Order 05.12.20.02, “Reviving a Healthy Georgia,” which allows public swimming pools to be reopened.
  2. Pending - Guidance from the DeKalb County Health Department. DeKalb Health has yet to confirm when they will inspect our facility to open. Sweetwater manages this process for us, but we don’t have a date.
  3. In Progress - Sweetwater’s ability to train and staff lifeguards – Latest update as of May 15th – “Our expectations are still to begin staffing lifeguard accounts on Saturday, May 30th.  Our staffing department will be in touch with you over the next week to ensure you would like to begin lifeguard service on that date.”
  4. In Progress - Vermack’s ability to adhere to social distancing guidelines. We are reviewing the guidance and will begin testing reservation systems for pool access this coming week.
  5. In Progress - Sanitization guidelines – Sweetwater has clarified the requirements based on recommendations from the CDC. We will adopt some of the items in the CDC guidance - Maintaining Healthy Environments.

Will we have Swim and Dive Team this year?

Please be on the lookout for an update from Cassie Owens very soon based on the recent polling and guidance from DeKalb’s Health Department.

Tennis Update

We continue to stay in touch with leaders of many local Swim and Tennis facilities.

  1. Based on how other clubs are operating and current guidance, the nets on courts 2 and 5 will be reinstalled in the coming weeks.
  2. Signs will be placed at the court entrances to clarify guidance and best practices.
  3. Please remember that large gatherings and social distancing must be followed.

More to come,

Jeff
