SFA is also open
Lots of schools opening in early July
Marshall University is open. Lane reservations are a blessing
I'm at A&M Galveston. IMLeagues is running really smooth for cardio and strength time slots
Montclair State in NJ has completed the opening plan, but no date given.
@CJ how long did it take you to set up IM leagues for this. When I looked into it seemd a bit tedious to get it all set up.
CJ, what is the current capacity your facility is working with?
@CJ how do you handle the waitlist?
At SFA, we do not require reservations. We have roped off the lap lanes, from the rec pool to keep non-lap swimmers from entering and interrupting lap swimmers. We have also created a high-risk and lap swim only hour. This is the first hour that we are open.
If you use community fanny packs, how is everyone disinfecting them?
During cleaning, are people having their student staff clean or will they be using outside groups only?
eric - how are you doing training on that? Just verbal, or did you run through the new EAP?
Lifeguards have their own hip packs, for the rest of the facility. We created "GO" bags that all staff must have on them at all times. These are able to be sanitized at the end of every night.

1 guard; closing staff restroom
Our guard office will just be one person at a time
The state of CA worked with the CDC on a reopening document that was extremely helpful.
What is everyones game plan for pool parties and how many are you allowing or if anyone is allowing pool party reservations at all?
@Tim IM Leagues is tedious but there are methods to make it simple, but allows us to check in participants. I know Fusion has a way to reserve lanes if you have Fusion at your Rec Center It took about 1 hour to set-up @Anike With the Waitlist there is a time stamp that allows us to determine who is next in line if there is a no show. @Peter for the pools lap pool is 8 only, outdoor is 6 only, the facility.
Restrictions on entering, exiting guard office, number of people, sanitizing, etc.
we are allowing 3 people max in our office, and we are not having any communal equipment, only BYOE
@Austin we are not allowing any events until further notice (we do not anticipate that being until 2021)
At SFA, we allow the GA, HG and one LG at a time. We created a space outside the guard off for another down guard to sit. We also have small locker (cubbies) for each guard. The guards are not allowed to have any personal belongings outside of their locker, unless they are the down guard. Everything must be kept in their lockers.
Guards keep things in their locker in the main locker room

Has anyone conducted "pre-season" LG training for summer staff? I have questions I'd like to send you via email. Bob@wm.edu
00:48:41Morgan Munoz- Towson Univ.
Has anyone needed to limit open Rec swim hours?
Univ. KY - all LGs will put backpacks in their lockers. No longer using cubbies in guard room as our guard room will only have 3 staff in it. Used to be huge gathering for staff when 'down'
For those that are open are your showers open and how do you disinfect them after each use?
All lockers, changing areas, and showers are off limits. We only allow persons to use bathroom stalls.
At UMB we will not be able to open the pool if there are no locker rooms and showers.
MI State Code - We need to keep locker rooms open in order to have the pools open.
CA building code requires showers also, but you can request building code exemptions.
Specifically for outdoor showers to substitute
making a rest room portion of locker room but no showers may be our end point. We are looking at portable rinse showers on deck but no plan is set yet
i agree on push back from faculty/staff. Some already use their offices
For those you that have rental groups (high school swim teams) that use your facility, when are you allowing them in the pool? with locker room usage?
NV code requires showers but locker rooms and showers are closed under governors directive. we are considering adding an on deck shower cleaned after every use, anyone else doing that or have feedback on that?
At SFA we have two outdoor showers patrons use.
As of now, we will not be having external events through December so no meets for local swim teams or additional programming. Waiting to hear about what Division 1 Swimming and Diving will be implementing
@Tiara at Texas A&M any outsider visitor is based on university guidelines. Currently we have a swim club and a dive club that use our facilities and they are not allowed back in until August 1st. There is a 3 phase return to campus approach for visitors
We will probably close open shower area. We do have some private shower stalls
Was anyone started teaching LG classes?
We are leaning towards since we have a full staff for environmental services who will maintain open rest rooms, the pool deck restrooms will not be open to assure that there is staff doing limited assigned cleaning areas
@erin teaching two in June, one this weekend
At SFA, we have mounted Spray bottle and towel holders around the pool deck with signage asking patrons to sanitize tables and chairs before and after use. If patrons do not do so, then my staff will follow them and wipe everything down when patrons leave.
@Erin we taught a class last week
For those not allowing showers in their locker rooms, will your pools be closed then since you cannot enforce the shower rule then? Or is there another solution you are working on?
Can you all talk that through at all?
Pool party reservation guidlines

I’m also interested in hearing about the lifeguard class
external groups will probably not happen
ARC said no LG classes at the moment because you can’t practice social distance guidelines on rescues, has this changed?
saw that - so cool $45
OH MY GOSH!!! I am geeking out a little bit about this plexi glass thing!
@Austin, I believe they have shifted to "follow local and state guidelines"
@Austin there have been a couple emails about it lately, there are virtual ways of doing it
And what Joey said!
Perhaps some areas do not have social distancing guidelines in place? We were told the same, but we have these in place here.
Ohio Red Cross Rep is allowing classes IF your local health department allows it
