NOTICE - MAY, 27, 2020:
Louisburg Aquatic Center to open in about 2 weeks
The Louisburg Aquatic Center will open to the public this summer as soon as the pool can be readied and lifeguards trained after action taken by the City Council at a special meeting Tuesday night.
The council decided to open the facility with some restrictions for social distancing but no time limitations, both options discussed by the council. Guests will be asked to maintain social distancing while waiting in lines to enter and exit the pool and to use the slides and diving board. Neither pool guests nor pool employees will be required to wear a mask.
All pool guests will be required to purchase a pool pass for $25 for each person. There will be no family passes or daycare passes sold this season, council decided. Passes will go on sale Monday, June 1 at City Hall, 215 S. Broadway. Passes must be purchased in person. Photos will be taken of each person at that time for identification purposes. Persons will be required to swipe their own pass each time they enter the pool. Pool employees will be on staff at City Hall to assist with the pass purchase. Passes will not be available to purchase until next week as pool employees will be attending training this week.
The council also voted to not open the concession stand this summer and not provide deck chairs. Guests must bring their own deck chairs. Council determined there is not a good way to sanitize the chairs between uses by different persons.
The pool will undergo more extensive cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting prior to the pool’s daily opening and at closing each night.
Council also decided all guests ages 11 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
Earlier this spring the pool’s slides were repainted and had a new application of gel coating applied to the insides of the slides. A contractor is currently replacing the guttering system. The city’s public works crew will begin filling the pool this week. City staff expect the pool to be ready to open in about two weeks. An announcement will be made at a later date when the facility will open.
The pool will maintain regular hours of noon to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday with lap swim from 8-9 p.m. and from noon-7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
For the most current news about the pool, please check the City’s website and Facebook page. Weather related or other emergency closings will be announced via the City’s Facebook page.
