The City of Brownwood is currently following the recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention – for Public Pools.
- Cleaning and Disinfection surfaces of restrooms, diaper-changing stations, showers, door handles, lounge chairs, handrails, slides, and tables. We will have cleaning and disinfections done daily prior to each of the daily swim sessions.
- Encourage all, staff, patrons, and swimmers to wash their hands often and cover their coughs and sneezes.
- We will post symptoms of possible COVID-19 for all employees to view with the understanding that if the employee feels any of the listed symptoms, they are to notify their supervisor quickly. All employees will have a temperature check upon arrival to work, with those greater than or equal to 99.9 degrees Fahrenheit not allowed to work unless they have a doctor’s note.
- Employees will be instructed on proper safety protocols of cleaning the facility.
- Modified Layouts by changing deck layouts to ensure that in the standing and seating areas, individuals can remain at least 6 feet apart they don’t live with in the same household.
