In response to the Covid 19 pandemic, the Judge Lewis Park Board has implemented some changes at the public swimming pool at Judge Lewis Park.
These changes presented at Monday’s city council meeting have been reviewed with Becky Fletchall, director of Ringgold County Public Health.
1. Plexiglass barriers were placed at both the main counter and concession stand counter. This allows for the lifeguards and patrons to have protective barrier.
2. Mandatory signage per CDC have been placed around the guardhouse and recommended CDC public service announcements will be read at the required pool check.
3. Hand sanitizers have been placed within the guardhouse and public water fountains are covered.
4. Use of Judge Lewis Park’s goggles, weights, foam weights, kickboards, and lifejackets will not be loaned to public. Patrons may use their own goggles or lifejackets but must remain on their bodies or returned to their “camp.” No equipment will be allowed to just lie on the pool gutters or pool skirt. No pool toys.
5. Guardhouse, girls/boys locker rooms, and pool skirt will be cleansed with bleach/water ratio recommended by the CDC. This cleaning solution provides disinfection for 24 hours. There will be one guard every rotation cleaning surfaces. They have a check list of each area so when they rotate everyone knows what has been cleaned and what needs cleaned. They will keep rotating through the list throughout the day.
6. There will be no lost and found. Items left at the end of the day will be tossed. We will continue to be fluid with the situation and work to provide a safe environment.
