With summer rapidly approaching, the Trustees and the management office have been hard at work preparing for a possible swimming pool opening.
As you may recall, the Trustees opted not to open the pool last year because of COVID-19 safety and liability concerns. While many of the same concerns remain for the 2021 season, we’ve also noted a lot of progress on many fronts. This has made the Trustees feel a bit more confident about the possibility of an opening. There are still uncertainties and a number of steps that would need to be taken-and first and foremost we want to be sure that we’re adhering to the highest levels of responsibility and safety.
Our current path is to continue monitoring the general progress of COVID numbers, being fully prepared for opening from the July Fourth holiday weekend through the Labor Day holiday weekend.
Please rest assured the Trustees recognize just how much swimming pool access means to many Deerfield residents. A decision to open the pool on this modified schedule can be approved only if COVID conditions continue to maintain their current favorable trajectory and it is clear that we can manage the pool operations responsibly.
We will update you as new information becomes available.
