As we navigate the 2021 season with changing COVID policies, Georgetown will continue to follow the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA), Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA), the Washtenaw County Health Department, and other agencies for our facilities and programming.

On Tuesday, June 22, state officials lifted most of Michigan’s COVID-19 restrictions. The Rescission of Emergency Orders canceled previous masking and capacity guidelines at the state level, leaving MIOSHA, LARA, local government agencies, and businesses to regulate guidelines.

Starting Monday, June 28, in alignment with these new guidelines, masks are no longer required indoors or outdoors at Georgetown regardless of age or vaccination status.

Exceptions include Camp Georgetown that will follow LARA’s recommendations that face coverings are worn by all individuals (staff and campers) knowing most of our campers play in close proximity and are well under the eligible age for vaccination.

Golf Course

The following high-level summary of expectations are based on current policies and may change weekly. Look for updates posted outside the Pro Shop and on our website.

  • Please do not come to the course if you have not been feeling well. Be considerate of the health and well-being of other members.
  • To ensure social distancing, members should schedule tee times for their rounds online through the Club website.
  • Players should arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before their round to avoid a gathering of people.

UPDATE: we are renting pull carts and golf clubs! Benches, ball washers, and bunker rakes are back on the course.

Pool Complex

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.

Sanitation Stations
Sanitizing supplies will be available at various hygiene stations located on the pool deck.

Pool Seating
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.

Kiddie Pool
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.

Guest Passes
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
Locker rooms will be fully open for use, and high-touch surfaces will be disinfected at least three times daily, exceeding CDC recommendations.

Lap Swimming
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.

Pirate Ship
The pirate ship will remain closed until further notice.

Camp Georgetown

UPDATE 6/27/2021: Camp Georgetown continues to follow LARA’s recommendations that face coverings are worn by all individuals (staff and campers) knowing most of our campers play in close proximity and are well under the eligible age for vaccination.

Whether your child has been doing school at home or in-person, this school year has not been the same for your child. We understand that during these unique times it means a lot to trust us with your child’s safety and we thank you for that confidence.

Our staff will be well trained in many safety standards including COVID safety measures. Camp Georgetown will do everything in our power to make sure everyone has a safe and fun summer!

Every person that enters our facilities (including staff) will have to do a safety questionnaire regarding contact with others and their own wellness. 

Just like last summer, we do have a face mask policy in place for everyone and are following guidelines set forth by our camp licensing agency LARA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), and the Washtenaw County Health Department. All of our policies and procedures regarding COVID safety will be posted for everyone to see along with verbal reminders.

Some of the COVID procedures that Georgetown Campers will be doing this summer are those your family may have been doing this whole time, including:

  • Washing hands
  • Social distancing
  • Wearing masks
  • And more…

We thank you for teaching your family about safety!
