AQUATICS (931 Martin Esquibel St.)

Open Tuesday and Thursday through July 1st -- Main/Rec Pool (Lap and Fitness Swim Only. No Rec Swim)

18 years of age and older only. No children will be permitted under any circumstances.

Patrons will be permitted to use cabanas and locker rooms. Showers will not be available for use. The cabanas will be disinfected after each open block of time. We encourage patrons to sanitize the common touched surfaces (door handles, faucet handles, toilet flush lever, countertop, and toilet seat) after their individual use. Sanitation wipes will be provided.

Patrons will be encouraged to come ready to swim and wear clothes over swim attire when leaving. This will assist in the social distancing of patrons and any potential spread of pathogens.

Showers will be made available upon staffing restrictions being lifted and in accordance with local health codes and as social distancing requirements allow.

The Spray Park bathrooms will be available for use during the open times. The bathrooms will be disinfected after each open block of time. We encourage patrons to sanitize the common touched surfaces (door handles, faucet handles, toilet flush lever, countertop, and toilet seat) after their individual use. Sanitation wipes will be provided.

Patrons will be encouraged to come ready to swim and wear clothes over swim attire when leaving. This will assist in the social distancing of patrons and any potential spread of pathogens.
