The Swimming Pools at the Columbus Club of Arlington

Columbus Club Pool Operations Summer 2021 

Updated: 5.18.21

Deck Extension

Dear Valued Pool Members,

We thank you for bearing with us as we navigate the constantly-changing COVID-19 regulations.
Since our last communication, the CDC and Governor’s office have announced additional future easements, and we expect additional notifications.  However, we wanted to take a moment to outline our current, immediate operational plans.

We must first note that the future relaxed regulations are designated for FULLY-VACCINATED individuals.  As a result, we STRONGLY encourage ALL eligible individuals to become fully vaccinated.  We thank all in our community who take these steps and enable us to return to more normal operations.

Regarding our specific areas of operation:

Please note that the relaxed guidelines for fully-vaccinated individuals DO NOT TAKE EFEFCT UNTIL FRIDAY, MAY 28, 2021.

This weekend, our opening weekend, will require us to maintain the following:
75% occupancy capacity (198 individuals within the pool area)
ten-foot social-distancing within the pool
six-foot social-distancing regarding pool seating
six-foot social-distancing on the pool grounds

We will NOT be requiring pool/picnic table reservations this coming weekend.  However, please note that because (1) it is opening weekend; (2) we expect weekend temperatures in the upper 80’s; and (3) we have all been cooped up for a very long time; we do expect large crowds this weekend. We please ask for your cooperation in working with our staff to make the weekend enjoyable for all our members.

Guest Policy for 2021:
At this juncture we will NOT be allowing any guests. This is subject to change as we move through operations this summer. If you have pre-paid for guest passes, in the event that we do not allow guests this summer, guest fee’s will roll over into the 2022 season.

The Sports Hall will be open on Friday and on Sunday. The Hall will be closed Saturday for a private event.
The Deep End will be providing beverage and limited food service over the weekend.
The Council Home will be closed this weekend.

We are awaiting additional state and local guidance for operations after May 28, 2021.  We will be following up next week with additional communication once we have this information.
