The pool is open at full capacity as of Thursday, June 10. Our pool deck “bather capacity” is 200 people, including lifeguard staff, which we are required to stay within.
Below are some key changes that members should be aware of with the opening to full capacity. We strongly encourage you to read the comprehensive GTCC Pool FAQ document and GTCC Pool COVID Preparedness and Response Plan for full information on using the pool and all its amenities.
Check-in and Check-out Procedure
While the pool complex is no longer using a reservation system, we are still required to stay within a 200-person capacity. Members are required to check-in when arriving at the pool AND check out when leaving for the day at the Pool Check-in desk so our staff can monitor the total number of people at the pool.
In addition, the total pool attendance will be posted at the top of the website home page. This allows members to check if attendance is HIGH (if you may be at risk of waiting to get in when you arrive). It also allows members to monitor capacity related to their comfort level in coming to the pool.
A health screening is no longer required to check-in; however, it is expected that members will not come to the pool if they are not feeling well or are unvaccinated and had a recent COVID-19 exposure per CDC guidelines.
Sanitizing supplies will be available at various hygiene stations located on the pool deck.
Pool loungers and chairs will be arranged in groupings to allow spacing between households. Loungers and chairs may be moved, but please be aware of the comfort of your neighbors and return your seats to their original location when you leave.
As a lower capacity option for families with young children, the zero-entry “kiddie pool” area will open for use starting Monday, June 14 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm daily.
To prioritize member access during high-demand periods from 12 pm – 3 pm on weekends, guest passes may not be used until 3 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. On weekends, guest pass use is limited to 5 guests/household. Otherwise, guest passes may be used at any time during weekdays.
Locker rooms will be fully open for use, and high-touch surfaces will be disinfected at least three times daily, exceeding CDC recommendations.
Lap lanes will be open to full capacity during general member use. We encourage members to share lanes when comfortable and appropriate. Members will be able to utilize a waiting list for lanes on a board located next to the lifeguard tower. If swimmers are waiting to use the lanes, please limit your lap swim to 45 minutes.
Gas grills will be open for use. Please bring your own utensils, clean the grill surface after use, and sanitize touch surfaces after use.
The pirate ship will remain closed until further notice.
