At-risk people should consult with their doctor before using the recreational facilities.
Please be good stewards of soap, paper towels, and sanitizer. Use as needed. Supplies are very limited. If supplies are exhausted we may be forced to close the facilities.
Caution signs will serve as a reminder that this effort should be considered at your own risk. A level of risk will likely be with us for some time and nothing anyone does will provide 100% safety. These are extraordinary circumstances so everyone needs to reevaluate how we view our surroundings. We should all mitigate our risk and maintain social distancing and practice good health habits.
Per the CDC (www.cdc.gov/COVID19 ), older adults and those with a chronic medical condition such as heart disease, diabetes, or lung disease are at higher risk for COVID-19 complications.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 or any of the many existing respiratory diseases now or in the future:
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
