SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- San Luis Obispo swim center is reopening after a temporary closure on Monday.
The center reopened Monday after a month of closure due to maintenance and repairs.
The repairs and maintenance included work being done on the Olympic pool, patching and rust removal, replacement of the main circulation pump, and pool deck maintenance and repairs.
The reopening will come with new COVID-19 safety guidelines to help prevent the spread of the virus.
“We’re happy to reopen just in time for the fall swim season,” said Shawn Tucker, the City’s Aquatics Recreation Coordinator. “We recently worked closely with the County Public Health Department to begin operating with additional COVID-19-safe practices starting today. We’re doing our part to slow the curve of the recent surge in cases.”
The swim center's Olympic and therapy pools will have a full schedule of lessons, aquatic exercise classes, lap swimming and programming for kids.
As part of the new COVID-19 measure, the pool will require guests to wear face masks indoors and to maintain social distancing indoors. They have also temporarily closed the indoor showers. Outdoor showers will still be available for use.
