In an effort to decrease the spread of the COVID-19 Virus and to accommodate for the staff shortage, Richmond Community Pool has implemented various safeguards that will be enforced to safeguard the community.
A reduced overall capacity. This capacity is slated to be changed as conditions change in our local community and state, and was determined to be the maximum capacity at which effective distancing can be achieved at the current time.
Face coverings for all unvaccinated patrons must be worn while visiting/using the pool. This includes buying tickets, signing-in, and moving throughout the bathhouse, pool deck and to the exit. However, patrons are strongly encouraged to not wear a face covering while swimming in the pool.
Social Distanced seating. Seating on the pool deck will be arranged for households to stay socially distant from each other. Deck furniture will be placed in groups of one or two all around the pool deck. We encourage patrons to not move seating groups around the deck and bring portable chairs to supplement their need if the group size exceeds 2.
Pool entrance fee WILL NOT be general admission this year. Tickets must be purchased for an open swim session. Limited tickets will be sold for each open swim session and only one session per person per day. Tickets will be sold starting at the BEGINNING OF EACH WEEK (Monday) for the week (through Sunday). For example, if wanting an open swim ticket for Wednesday, June 23rd at 4pm, it could be purchased starting Monday, June 21st at 8:30am thru Wednesday, June 23rd at 4:30pm. Tickets can be purchased at the Richmond Community Center Monday through Friday from 8:30am-1:30pm and the Richmond Community Pool Tuesday through Sunday during open swim hours.
There will be NO REFUNDS/MAKE-UPS for missed or unattended sessions. Rain checks will be issued for any reason the pool closes early (severe weather, contamination, etc.) for a future available swim session.
DO NOT arrive early for your session, early entrances will not be allowed.
Arrive ready to swim. Be dressed in your swimsuit and be prepared to exit the same way. The bathhouse will be available on a limited basis and uses will be highly discouraged except for emergencies.
Bring only essential items for swim time (water bottles, goggles, towel, sunscreen, pool toys). Leave all other items in your car or at home.
* Concession Stand and drinking fountain will NOT be available. *
