Due to less than normal staffing applications, the pools will alternate six (6) days during the week. One of the two pools will be open each day. All pools will be closed for maintenance and training on Mondays. Citizens should be advised, currently, the attendance is limited to 50% of normal occupancy per the Governor’s orders.
In an effort to accommodate as many pool goers as possible, and to allow staff to clean the facilities, entry passes will be sold for 3-hour sessions. Passes go on sale at the pool each day, 30 minutes prior to the posted opening times. Passes will be sold for each day only on that day. Passes will be limited to a 3-hour session A or session B, good only for the date stamped on the pass. No punch cards will be sold this year. Passes will be available for $3.00 each.
Due to staffing limitations and COVID-19 precautions, there are a few other rules for the 2020 pool season. No private parties or reservations will be allowed. There will be no lap swim times and no swimming lessons. No family nights are scheduled.
Citizens are encouraged to bring their own outdoor folding chair (please share this new information). If any citizen needs special accommodations, they should speak to a manager at the site.
Reminder: No outside food or drink permitted in City of Midland aquatic centers.
PLEASE do not come to these facilities if you or anyone in your party has COVID 19 symptoms or has been exposed to anyone that has had symptoms in the previous fourteen (14) days.
