Hello Little Falls Swimming Club Families,
On May 27 Governor Hogan announced a partial opening of the state, which includes the ability to use outdoor pools at 25% capacity. Montgomery County has not yet followed suit, although county staff have been inspecting pools and we are pleased to report that Little Falls passed its inspection and is ready to open when we are able to do so.
The Board, in close communication with Bethesda Aquatics, is sorting through details. Much will depend on Montgomery County’s guidelines, but we anticipate a “Phase One” opening that will allow for limited and controlled access to the pool. Planning steps that need to be completed in advance of the opening include working with our software vendor to employ a reservation system and developing policies requiring staggered arrivals and exits, limiting use of the bath houses, getting staff appropriately trained, and implementing a robust cleaning/sanitizing protocol.
Given the details that need to be ironed out, we hope to be ready to open the pool on the first day that Montgomery County allows it; but we will not do so unless we feel that we are able to open in a safe and efficient manner that is equitable to all members, to the extent we will be able to accommodate them. We appreciate your continued patience – we too are eager to get back in the water!
Thanks for your understanding. We will continue to keep you appraised as plans unfold.
