Phase Three - Pool Update
Posted on Jul 6th, 2020
Hello, Belmont Glen Residents!
Starting Wednesday, July 1st, we will be expanding our pool operations into Phase 3, which means free swim is permitted and no longer limited to lap swim only.
The pool will be opened in 2-hour increments, followed by 30-minute closures whereby the facility will be cleared and all pool patrons must vacate to allow for thorough and proper disinfecting of high contact surfaces before reopening.
Many of the current safety precautions will continue. Please read the following information carefully. With your cooperation we can provide the safest possible swimming experience for our community.
Accessing the Pool
Pool visits will continue to be coordinated via SignUpGenius through a link https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/904084caaa622aafa7-belmont
and also posted to the Belmont Glen HOA Community Pool FB page. To ensure compliance with the Phase 3 occupancy restrictions and physical distancing requirements, reserving space through SignUpGenius is required.
Upon arrival, residents should plan to provide proof of residence with a picture ID. Residents will also be required to sign and submit an acknowledgment form with checklist testifying that they have not experienced symptoms nor have knowingly been exposed to the COVID-19 virus in the previous 2 weeks. This form, which is more comprehensive than the previous checklist for Phase 2, can be found on SignUpGenius and should be printed out prior to arriving at the pool, if possible.
Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult 18-years-of-age or older. If the accompanying adult does not wish to swim with their under 16-year-old child, they may observe from the deck as long as they maintain the expectations for social distancing. Parents of teens (16 and up) who wish to access the pool without a parent and who do not possess a picture ID, should inform the Pool Committee whereby a list of their names for lifeguard reference will be maintained. At home childcare providers may also be included on this list. Please contact the pool committee if you have a childcare provider who needs to be added to the list.
Protecting the Health of Residents and Lifeguard Staff
Residents will enter through the lobby/pool house and proceed through the restrooms onto the deck area, and then exit the same way through the restrooms in the pool house.
Crystal Aquatics has advised us that the following measures will apply to lifeguards and other pool employees:
IMPORTANT: If a resident or a member of the lifeguard or other pool staff tests positive for the COVID-19 virus after visiting our pool during the period when they may have been contagious, it should be reported to the Pool Committee and/or our pool management company, Crystal Aquatics as soon as possible. Consequently, the pool will be closed immediately for a period of 48 hours to ensure that the pool facility is properly disinfected prior to reopening.
The Pool Committee may be contacted by email at email@example.com. We also encourage residents to join the Belmont Glen HOA Community Pool FB where you will find updates and information communicated in real time.
Your Pool Committee members are:
Kevin Mataxas, Chair
Lanique Eubanks, BG HOA Board Liaison
