Weather permitting, the Charles City municipal swimming pool is set to reopen this Monday, Memorial Day.
After the pool was closed all of last summer due to COVD-19, Parks and Rec Director Tyler Mitchell says patrons are ready for the pool’s return in 2021.
Mitchell says regular pool hours will be 1 to 7 p.m. and reminds swimmers to check the pool Facebook page for updates throughout the summer in regards to weather. Aside from severe weather closing down the pool, he says on days with cooler temps, they may open later at 3 p.m. instead of 1 p.m.
Mitchell adds there are no pool capacity restrictions due to COVID and no masks are required, but he advises patrons to attend based on their comfort level. He says staff will be disinfecting the pool regularly.
