Community Pool To Open June 3; Job Application Period Closed
Posted by Ynez Taylor on May 11, 2020
Rising Sun City Council has approved the opening of its Community Pool in 2020. According to Indiana’s “Back On Track” plan, community pools are allowed to open as early as May 24. However, the Rising Sun is opening slightly later and with restrictions. Beginning June 3, the pool will be open to Ohio County residents only. Then beginning July 5, there will be an evaluation as to whether it will open to everyone else.
Guests of the pool and pool employees should continue to follow CDC guidelines to help protect against the spread and contraction of COVID-19. One typical recommendation which should NOT be followed is wearing face coverings in the water. While they can be used in on the deck and restroom facilities, the CDC says face coverings should not be used in the water because they make it difficult to breathe when wet.
(UPDATED AS OF FRIDAY, MAY 15) The application period for lifeguards and concession workers is now closed.
