ASHLAND, VA (July 13, 2020) Effective immediately, we are temporarily closing the Carter Park Pool. One of our pool staff members has been in brief contact with a COVID-19 positive individual. For clarity, our staff member has been tested and is waiting on results, but as of this publication has not received a positive test result. Until our staff member has received a negative test result the pool complex will remain closed.
A part of the pool staff’s daily schedule is to clean each surface touched by the public every thirty minutes. In addition to this daily effort, all surfaces at the pool complex will be sanitized during this temporary closure.
The health and safety of our community is our top priority. We will continue to promote the following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
- Stay at home if you are sick, have been in close proximity to someone displaying symptoms associated with COVID-19, and/or someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, even if asymptomatic.
- Wash your hands often and do not share items with people you do not live with.
- Stay at least six (6) feet away, both in and out of the water, from people you do not live with.
