PLEASE NOTE: THE HATBORO MEMORIAL POOL WILL NOT BE OPENING FOR THE 2020 SEASON DUE TO COVID-19
The Borough of Hatboro regrets to announce that the Hatboro Memorial Pool will not be opening for the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 virus. The Hatboro Memorial Pool is a treasured part of the Hatboro Community and the closure of the pool for this season was not taken lightly.
Over the last two months, the Borough Pool Committee held numerous meetings to assess the COVID-19 pandemic. The Pool Committee performed financial analyses, contacted neighboring pools for their opinions on the upcoming summer, and attended numerous COVID-19 seminars through the Pennsylvania Parks and Recreation Society to develop a possible operation plan for the pool.
On Thursday, May 14th, the Borough received guidance from the Pennsylvania Parks and Recreation Society stating that the Memorial Pool would only be permitted to open under the Green Phase of Governor Wolf’s Plan for Pennsylvania and that the pool would be limited to 25 patrons at a time per zone. Patrons would also be required to have their temperatures taken prior to entering the facility and would be required to wear masks while in the facility.
Opening the pool under these restrictions, especially limiting the pool to 25 persons at a time, is not feasible nor fair for our residents and pool members. As a result, the pool will be closed for the 2020 Season. Many other municipal and private pools in our area have made the same decision to keep their facilities closed this summer due to potential dangers that the virus poses to swimmers as well as the heavy restrictions imposed.
The safety of our residents, pool members, and staff is of the utmost importance to the Borough and keeping the pool closed this season is the only way to keep swimmers and staff out of harms way during the pandemic.
In the meantime, Borough Council and staff are already planning for a bigger, better Memorial Pool Season in 2021. We thank everyone for their understanding during this time.
