POOL/PARK TO OPEN, Updated May 1, 2020
The following rules are in place.
The HOA board, following The Villages lead, has authorized the opening of the pool and park effective Monday morning, May 4, 2020, with the following stipulations that are in accordance with The Villages rules. The Recreation News published April 30th, has guidelines for all activities indoors and outdoors.
1. Some seating has been removed to allow for social distancing...six feet between people. What does six feet (72") look like? A shuffleboard cue is 75" (about right). A pool noodle is 58" (14" shorter). A golf driver is 45" (18" shorter). Golf carts...if a third cart can drive between two others, the two others are the right distance apart.
2. The water fountain has been turned off. Bring your own water.
3. Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth. The Villages requires masks for all indoor and outdoor activities. (Page 7 of April 30 Recreation News)
4. Bring your OWN disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer. The HOA is not providing these products.
5. NO GLASS containers of any kind for any product at the pool.
6. Please stay healthy, and social distance please! (Stay 6 feet from each other)
7. If you are ill, sick, or don't feel 100%...stay away from the pool/park.

Unlike The Villages, there will be no monitors checking the park/pool for adherence to the above rules. The board anticipates those at the pool/park will monitor themselves and the group that is there. Please be a responsible resident. 

This will be our normal until further notice, and we anticipate this will likely continue for the remainder of 2020.
