COVID-19 Safety Plan
All members, their guests and guests attending private functions are expected to be aware of and follow all rules & regulations. The COVID-19 Safety Plan will supersede any other applicable rules or regulations.
The COVID-19 Safety Plan is subject to change and may be updated at anytime.
Extra staff will be on hand during first few weeks to help with transition to new procedures.
Wear a mask upon entering and exiting the facility and when close contact with other individuals cannot be avoided.
No guests will be allowed at this time. We will reevaluate after July 6th.
USTA guidelines for tennis will be strictly enforced on all courts, which will mean smaller size clinics and no sharing of equipment. CLICK HERE FOR USTA GUIDANCE.
Picnic tables: Spaced out in all groves, families must use table covering if using a table for the day, no tables at snack bar.
Lounge chairs on pool deck spaced in groups of 2/3 (per family) 6 feet apart on pool deck. Do not move lounge chars. Sanitized each night.
Adirondack chairs: we will provide sanitized wipes upon request when members pick up chairs; we sanitize and restack at night, smaller piles to minimize contact with others.
Beach blankets- families should keep all of their belongings on their own blankets and space at least six feet from friends. Please leave space for others to walk.
Playground: Open when staffed only (11:30 - 4:30/5) , staffer will monitor children and enforce “sanitize before you play” rule (will provide hand sanitizer before entering playground). Staff will monitor numbers on playground (to 15, 6 on toddler playground). Slides and swings wiped down 3 times a day and in evening.
Walkways must keep traffic moving. Area between pond and pool fence will serve as a walkway this season – no blankets or seating allowed there. There is not enough room to sit 10 feet from pond and allow people to safely walk 6 feet behind.
Area around the tree outside pool deck will be closed off from seating to allow maximum # of lounge chairs against the fence and keep distance from walkway.
Children under 10 must be with an adult at pool, swimming pond, playground, bath house and snack bar. We strongly encourage families to send one adult to the snack bar to get food as line can get congested.
No tubes, noodles or rafts - personal flotation devices on non-swimmers only.
Bath house will be one-way traffic only and monitored by assigned staff during busy hours to limit the number of members inside. Entrance will be on the pool deck with lines marked to ensure 6-foot spacing. Exit will be out the former front door of each. Additionally, staff will be dedicated to this area for the regular cleaning of all surfaces. We will install touchless soap dispensers and faucets here and in the guard shack medical treatment area. We will follow the state guidelines for masks and request that members wear them while inside the bathhouses and in line.
The snack bar will also follow a one-way traffic pattern. The line will run alongside the deck with marked spaces for 6-foot distance One-way traffic will flow up the stairs, waiting areas will be marked on the deck and everyone will exit the snack bar through the back deck gate. Snack bar will have one dedicated staffer for accepting orders and payments who will have no contact with food. We will follow the states guidelines for masks and request that members wear them while in line at the snack bar.
The roads (on both sides of the pond) beyond the front lot will be closed after 11am to allow for additional walking space and safe exiting of the snack bar. Members will be allowed to drive in and drop off supplies before 11am.
Staff will be highly visible and walking the grounds throughout the day to assist members with social distancing and provide support to any members as needed. A staff member station will be situated in front of the shack to help with any questions or concerns. Supervisors will carry walkie-talkies to allow them to rotate around club and be in contact with shack staff in case of emergencies.
Arts and Crafts will be limited to M,W,F. to allow our employees to prepare single use crafts so materials are not shared between children.. We will use space in the pavilion for arts and crafts to allow room for families to comfortably enjoy this activity. BINGO will also be spaced in the pavilion and boards and chips will be disinfected after each use.
All staff will have temperature taken upon arrival to work each day. Any staffer exhibiting any symptoms of illness will be sent home and not return until released by doctor. A series of health questions will be asked of each employee before the employee clocks in.
Gatehouse will have Plexiglas installed. No visitors (staff or members) allowed in gatehouse.
At the end of each shift staffer will clean high contact areas before leaving.
Sanitizer will be at every guard station for wipe down before rotating shifts.
The virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to others by infected persons who have few or no symptoms. Even if an infected person is only mildly ill, the people they spread it to may become seriously ill or even die, especially if that person is 65 or older with pre-existing health conditions that place them at higher risk. Because of the hidden nature of this threat, everyone should rigorously follow the practices specified in these protocols, all of which facilitate a safe and measured reopening. The virus that causes COVID-19 is still circulating in our communities. We should continue to observe practices that protect everyone, including those who are most vulnerable. It is your personal responsibility to use safe practices.
