Health & Safety (COVID)


Frank Banko Southern Lehigh Community Pool Operational Guidelines

As of Monday, May 31, 2021

The following guidelines have been made after careful planning and consideration of the health and safety for our members, guests, and employees.

Pool Hours:  12:00 noon to 8:00 pm.  Monday through Sunday.  Days and times subject to change due to weather or swim meets.  Please check the Facebook page for any announcements and the website for swim meet schedule.

Lounge chairs will not be provided as there are too many touch points to sanitize between use.  Please bring your own pool chairs if so desired.

Park benches and picnic table will be provided as usual and will be cleaned routinely.

Diving board, sliding board and recreational areas (e.g., ping pong, basketball) will be open.

Pool toys are permitted. No inflatables.

Payment at entrance:  Credit cards, Venmo or cash are accepted.

Payment at concession stand:  Cash and Venmo are accepted.

Locker rooms, showers and changing areas are open.

Pool capacity is normal.

Day passes:  As per our standard policy, guests that purchase day passes will need to sign in with their name and address.  If we observe an increase in the number of guests from outside the immediate community, we may need to limit the purchase of day passes in some capacity.

For preventing the spread of COVID-19, please follow these guidelines:

  • Covid-19 Vaccination: Fully vaccinated members, guests and staff do not need to wear a mask.  Any unvaccinated members, guests and staff will need to wear masks and observe social distancing. Vaccination status will not be confirmed by staff, so we ask that everyone upholds the honor system and act accordingly.  Please note, masks are not to be worn in the pool.
  • Hygiene: Wash or sanitize your hands often. Cover your coughs and sneezes. Soap and hand sanitizer are available in the pool house.
  • Be Smart: Stay home when you have signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or any other communicable disease.
  • Pool House and Pool Sanitizing: We will be cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces both indoors and outdoors on a rigorous and consistent schedule.
