The pool facility is closed for at least 2 weeks. We will post to Facebook, the mailing list, and website when we know more. Below is the official announcement from the pool.
Dear Members, Year Round Pool Swimmers, Pool Rental teams, and guests,
After consulting with medical professionals and others who have been in the midst of assessing programs and access to their respective places of business and social gathering venues, we have decided to close VRSTC for a minimum of 14-days. Please know that this team thoughtfully considered every option to modify our pool access with the hope to keep it open. However, the efforts to both manage any modifications and the outlying unknown risks with this virus led us to believe that it in the best interest for everyone’s health to join in on the efforts to contain this virus by closing the pool.
We recognize that the CDC says chlorine may kill COVID-19 viruses. However due to the proximity between swimmers at any given time and other surface areas that could be infected, we believe closing is still a wise decision.
As an athlete myself, I recognize that this is a critical time to remain active and physical exercise is important to our well being! I thank you for your support and understanding, and hope that we can be open to you soon.
We will provide another update after the initial 14-days is over. Stay safe, wash your hands and don’t touch your face!
