Reston Association to Delay Opening of Pools in Response to COVID-9

Pools operated by Reston Association will not open in May, as originally scheduled, due to the current stay-at-home order issued by Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam.

In a statement released yesterday (Wednesday), RA said aquatics, programs, events and other pool-related activities “will not be rescheduled at his time.” The association expects to have more information on the situation around June 10.

For now, the association is assuming that pools will reopen sometime this summer. Pre-season maintenance projects are underway.

But RA cautioned that it may take three weeks or more to reopen its facilities from the time restrictions on gatherings and social distancing are lifted.

Supply chains we rely on for chemicals and pool equipment may be interrupted. In addition, proper training, orientations for staff and other safety measures will need to be in place before any of our pools can resume operations,” RA said.

RA did not immediately respond to a request from Reston Now on how the delayed openings will impact pool passes.
