Otaki Pool announced on Friday that they’re back open for the water enthusiasts or as they say ‘awesome swimmers.’
Strict restrictions are in place in terms of the facilities’ use of water fountains, hygiene, how many people can be in the building at once, and how many swimmers can be in each lane at a time to follow the 2-meter social distancing rule.
“You will notice a few changes have been made around the place.”
A maximum of 70 people is to only be in the facility at a time. For lanes, a maximum of 4 swimmers per lane in their Main Pool and ten swimmers in their Toddlers Pool.
The Spa and Sauna will be closed until further notice.
Equipment like floaties will not be allowed; people will have to bring their own assuming the staff would have to clean each item individually & the chemicals used could destroy them quality-wise.
Water fountains at the facility will be turned off so people will need to bring their own water bottles/drinks etc.
“We understand that the pool will likely be a popular go-to for families this weekend so to manage demand and make sure that everyone can have a dip, we ask that older and lane swimmers visit us in the mornings and families with children wait until after 1 pm,” said Otaki Pool in a statement.
