Weddington Ridge Pool Season Update

As you may be aware, Governor Roy Cooper enacted an Executive Order on May 20, 2020 moving North Carolina into Phase 2 of reopening which included allowing public pools to open with certain restrictions. The Weddington Ridge community pool will be opening on May 30th, subject to the restrictions and guidelines outlined below. We need the cooperation of EVERY ONE OF YOU to adhere to these restrictions to ensure the pool can remain open during current Phase (expected to last at least through June 26th).

• Pool area entry capacity is limited to 52 people with 26 people allowed in the water at a time
• Entry and Waitlist Process:
o Pool entry will be first come-first served
o All residents must sign in when entering/exiting the pool area, notating their entry/exit time
o In an effort to allow all residents to enjoy the pool, a waitlist strategy is being implemented. All households will be guaranteed a minimum stay of 2-hours.
o If there is a waitlist for entry (households will be asked to wait outside the pool gate) or if at the hourly count there are more than 52 people in the pool area or 26 people in the water, the household(s) that has been at the pool the longest (after their minimum stay has been met) will be asked to leave the pool area first and in a timely manner
o If there are households waiting at the entrance, exit only through the back gate near the showers
• The pool will be open daily from 9-10AM ONLY for vulnerable populations (65+, immune compromised, etc.). If you need pool access during this time of day, please email ASAP
• No toys (except safety floats) will be allowed in the pool area. Lost items will be discarded at the end of the day
• No guests or pool parties will be allowed
• Allow AquaTech employees the space they need to periodically clean all high touch-point area as required
• Wipe down your lounge chairs and tables before and after use. Bring your own disinfectant
• Maintain appropriate social distancing (i.e. stay at least 6 feet from other people & do not gather in groups outside of your immediate household)
• Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer
• Cloth face coverings are strongly encouraged when entering and exiting the pool area and when not in the pool or visiting the restrooms
• Do NOT enter the pool area if you are symptomatic with COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath, etc.), have been in contact with a person diagnosed or is presumed positive with COVID-19, or have traveled out of the country in the past 2 weeks

By entering the Weddington Ridge pool, you are agreeing to abide by the above restrictions & guidelines and that the facilities are open to use AT YOUR OWN RISK (neither the HOA nor AquaTech can be responsible for preventing the spread of germs throughout the facility, including SARS-COV-2). If any resident is determined to be in violation of these restrictions by AquaTech or the Board, your pool access will be revoked for period of at least 2 weeks. As pool season progresses, these procedures will be evaluated and are subject to change.
