Guidelines to help protect our pool 

What can I do to help...

  • Make sure your children are properly, thoroughly and often washing their hands.  Supervise all restroom trips if necessary.  Hand washing is particularly critical before eating and after restroom trips.
  • Stay out of the pool if you have diarrhea and for 2 weeks after the diarrhea has ceased.
  • Stay out of the pool if you test Cryptosporidium positive for 2 weeks after the symptoms have disappeared and after you receive 3 negative tests.
  • Do not change diapers at the pool anywhere except the restrooms.  Particularly on facility chairs.
  • If you are aware of a diaper failure, a fecal or vomiting accident or see any fecal matter in the pool, please immediately notify the manager.
  • Take your children on bathroom breaks often. Waiting to hear "I have to go" may mean its too late.
  • Wash your bodies (particularly diaper age children) thoroughly (especially the rear-end) with soap and water before swimming. We all have invisible amounts of fecal matter on our bottoms that end up in the pool.

In the future...

  • If you or a family member has a health concern, or a question, contact one of the Directors.  Do not attempt to leave a message with staff at the pool.
  • Please contact a Director directly for accurate information. Do not rely on media reports or information obtained from rumor mills.
