No change In Late Opening Date of June 27th

We are aware of the Governor’s updated 50% allowance for pools. However, this does not change our planned late opening of June 27th.

As we are primarily a play/recreation style pool (and not primarily a lap/exercise class style facility) we would be operating at a higher loss at 50% capacity than by waiting to open at full capacity based upon our stated Health Department capacity.

This loss is further compounded once you read the fine print of the Governor’s order concerning continued social distancing, mask wearing even while around the pool, and NCDHHS/CDC sanitizing guidance.

Please note, that both the most recent executive order’s 5 week length time-frame announced Wednesday as well as our local Parks and Rec’s just announced planned late opening of at least July 1st closely aligns with EARC’s forecasted June 27th planned late opening.
