The Cumming Aquatic Center has reopened!

Lots of questions regarding pools and swim lessons are being asked on ssocial media platforms.  The Cumming Aquatic Center reopened on May 2oth with a limited capacity.  

Based on information from the website these are the restrictions and limits being adhered to as of today's date.  Please refer back to see any changes that may take place.

The Cumming Aquatic Center will open in a limited capacity on Wednesday, May 20, 2020. The Competition Pool hours of operation will be Monday through Saturday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. The Instructional Pool hours of operation will be Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and Saturday from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. We will only be offering Adult Swim in the Instructional Pool and lap swimming in the Competition Pool on a first come first serve basis. The facility will be closed on Sunday, and the Outdoor Leisure Pool will also remain closed at this time. The Instructional Pool bather load will be 12 swimmers and the Competition Pool bather load will be 30 swimmers. This schedule will be followed until further notice.

All programs will continue to be suspended. Participants who are enrolled in Summer Group Swim Lesson session 1 (Tuesday/Thursday AM), session 2 (Tuesday/Thursday PM), session 3 (Monday/Wednesday), and session 4 (Saturdays) will receive an account credit for the full amount paid. Registration for future group swim lessons will remain open. Facility rentals will be suspended through June 14th. If you have a cabana booked during this time, it will be cancelled and a refund check will be issued for the full amount. Facility rentals already booked for the foreseeable future are urged to consider alternative dates outside the window of program/rentals suspensions. Memberships will resume on May 20, 2020 and will be extended for the appropriate amount of time (9.5 weeks) upon request.

When we do re-open, we will be taking several measures to ensure the safety of our staff and guests, as outlined below:

  • All staff and guests will be screened upon arrival at the CAC, including a temperature check using an infrared (no-touch, temp must be below 100.4) thermometer. If you have had any signs of illness including but not limited to a cough, fever, shortness of breath, if you have been in contact with someone suspected or confirmed as having COVID-19, or if you are confirmed or suspected as having COVID-19, we kindly ask that you do not come to the Cumming Aquatic Center.
  • All staff and guests will be asked to follow social distancing guidelines and maintain a distance of 6 feet from others at all times, in and out of the pool. Please do not congregate in groups.
  • All staff will be wearing face masks. Guests are encouraged to wear face masks when out of the pool.
  • Only 1 swimmer or 1 family of 4 residing in the same residence will be permitted in each Competition Pool lane.
  • The changing area of the locker rooms will be closed, however the restrooms and showers will remain open. Guests are encouraged to shower at home before and after swimming. Sanitizing spray will be available in the showers and all guests are asked to sanitize the shower area they used once finished. There will be designated lockers available for guest use on each pool deck.
  • The upstairs bleacher seating, multi-purpose room off the Competition Pool deck, and Activity Rooms 105 & 106 will be locked. The vending room will remain open but there will not be any tables or chairs inside.
  • A sneeze guard has been installed at the Front Desk. Guests are encouraged to pay with debit/credit cards rather than cash or check.
  • Aquatic Center equipment (kickboards, pull buoys, etc.) will not be available for guest use. Guests may bring their own equipment.
  • CAC staff will be scheduled to clean/sanitize all surfaces hourly or as needed.
  • Proper chemical levels will continue to be maintained in the pools and water tests will be performed twice as often. The CDC reports that there is no evidence that COVID-19 can be transferred through properly maintained swimming pool water.

We are looking forward to getting back to normal, however in the meantime we are committed to making the CAC a safe place for our guests and staff. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions at all, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
