Pool Information Update

June 29, 2020

 

 

Dear Ledgewood Resident,

 

Thank you!  In general, the first weekend of pool access under the new mandate has gone well. Many residents have expressed appreciation for the high level of safety protocols the Association put in place to be compliant with the Ohio & Cuyahoga Health Department mandates for aquatic centers. We have also identified opportunities to help residents navigate these mandates. We’re providingmore insight and information below. 

 

RESERVATIONS

Reservations must be made at least one (1) hour in advance of accessing the pool, this allows for the effective management of pool staff.  

 

Please only reserve one (1) two (2) hour time slot per day to allow for as many residents to access the pool as possible. If time slots are open, additional time slots can be reserved at the time of your visit. Previously,reservations could be made a week in advance, now beginning next week, reservations will be made up to three (3) days in advance.   

 

Reservations for pool are required and can be made on the Ledgewood website https://www.ledgewood.org/p/pool-signup.html or by phone at the front desk (440-238-6000) during pool hours. If you have a reservation and decide not to come, please call the pool or go online to cancel your reservation. This allows an open slot for others to access the pool.  

 

Pool Hours:

Noon-8pm: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, & Sunday

Closed: Monday & Thursday

 

SOCIAL DISTANCING 

The pool has always been a social hub of the neighborhood and it still can be as long as 6 feet of social distancing between households is maintained. It is the responsibility of all Ledgewood residents to maintain social distancing when on the pool grounds. For a few reasons, pool staff will assign specific lanes to residents. 

 

This accommodates those residents who may need the assistance of a ladder in and out of the pool. It also helps with social distancing throughout the pool grounds and helps prevent the congregation of large groups. This allows our lifeguards and pool staff to safely monitor swimmers and ensure that residents are socially distancing. The health of our residents is our top priority, along with making sure that everyone feels safe at the pool. Please remember to socially distance from other households while in the water as well. The lanes themselves are not six feet apart and residents will be reminded not to get too close while swimming.       

     

REMINDER

We are heading into a busy holiday weekend! This is a friendly reminder that alcoholic beverages are not allowed in the pool area and the posted pool rules and regulations are still in place. These can be found at Ledgewood.org. 

 

Again, thank you for all the suggestions and support. Take the time to thank the pool staff for doing a great job in keeping us all safe while allowing access to the pool.  We will continue to communicate updates. As always, please feel free to reach out to any of us, or directly to Ken Angermeier at KenA@ledgewood.org.Take care of yourself, family, and neighbors.  

 

Sincerely, 

 

Ledgewood Association Trustees

Pool Opening and Reservation Information

Hello Neighbors,
Following up on our communication last week, we are sharing the plan for Phase One of the pool opening. We will continue to evaluate the guidelines based on changing health department mandates and the reality of implementation. Residents’ access to the pool will begin on Friday, June 26.    
We acknowledge that there are different levels of awareness of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Ohio and Cuyahoga County Health Department guidelines, and seeing them for the first time can seem overwhelming.  We will have details on Ledgewood.org, clear signage at the clubhouse entrance and throughout the pool area for reminders. It is the entire Ledgewood community’s responsibility to observe the guidelines so that we remain in compliance with the Health Department mandates. The safety of the Ledgewood residents and pool staff remain a priority, as well as protecting the Association.
In compliance with the Ohio & Cuyahoga Health Department, the following is an overview of guidelines and procedures necessary for Ledgewood residents to access the pool.  Details can also be found athttps://www.ledgewood.org/p/pool-signup.html and will be posted at the pool entrance.  

STAY HEALTHY GUIDANCE
Do not use the pool if you have:
• symptoms of COVID-19, 
• tested positive for COVID-19, or 
• been exposed to COVID-19 positive person within the last 14 days
• There is widespread, ongoing transmission of novel coronavirus worldwide.  If you have traveled internationally in the past 14 days, stay home and monitor your health.
Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions, like heart or lung disease or diabetes, seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.
If you do develop symptoms of Covid-19, test positive, or come in contact with someone that tests positive, you must notify the association for contact tracing protocols.  
Face masks are required for entry and indoors (during check-in, in the lobby and hallway, inside restrooms, etc.). Masks can be removed once outside on the pool deck. 
Wash and disinfect hands frequently.  Hand sanitizer stations will be located throughout the pool area for convenience, and please bring your own, as well too.   
POOL CAPACITY & HOURS
The pool hours will be the same as previous years; noon- 8 pm, except on Mondays and Thursdays when it will be closed for deep cleaning.  
Based on the Cuyahoga County Department of Healthguidelines, the pool’s occupancy limit will be modified to not exceed 60 people and/or 24 households at a time, whichever number is reached first. Lane dividers and a reservation system have been put in place to meet the occupancy guidelines.  
GUESTS
No guests will be allowed to access the pool during Phase One. Nannies and/or caretakers do not count as guests. Grandchildren residing outside of Ledgewood, however, are considered guests and will not be allowed in during Phase One. 
RESERVATIONS
Reservations for pool are required and can be made on the Ledgewood website


or by phone at the front desk (440-238-6000) during pool open hours. 

Residents will be able to make reservations in 2-hour increments for the following areas.
1. 50m lap swimming, 
2. 25m lane per household, 
3. Baby pool (available for one family at a time), or 
4. Sunbathing with no access to the pool 
We realize these modifications to the operations of the pool are going to very different from the usual. Residents who choose to use the pool will be required to sign an agreement that they understand and will follow the policy and procedures.  The safety of the pool staff and residents is a top priority.  
WHAT TO DO IF YOU GET SICK
If you visit the pool and do develop symptoms of COVID-19, test positive, or come in contact with someone that tests positive, you must notify the Association for contact tracing protocols.  
Thank you for your continued patience and support as we navigate our new normal. We will continue to communicate updates. As always, please feel free to reach out to any of us, or directly to Ken Angermeier at KenA@ledgewood.org.

Playground, Clubhouse Update

Hello Neighbors,

A brief update on the areas that are not yet open:
• PLAYGROUNDS: The Cuyahoga Health Department requires playground equipment be disinfected every hour. Ledgewood does not have resources to maintain a cleaning schedule of that frequency. We will continue to monitor the requirements and communicate if the playground can be opened.
• CLUBHOUSE: The clubhouse will remain closed through the end of August due to the fact that gatherings of no more than ten people is still in place.  We will continue to monitor the requirements and communicate if the Clubhouse status changes.

Thank you for your continued patience and support as we navigate our new normal. Look for a communication next week on the pool details. As always, please feel free to reach out to any of us, or directly to Ken Angermeier at KenA@ledgewood.org.

Stay safe and healthy,

Individuals who have reserved the Clubhouse will be getting their deposit back.  We will be returning all deposits through June 30 and planning to re-evaluate at that time to determine if we need to extend the closure.  If you would like to cancel or rebook for later in the year, please contact Diane Thompson (diane@ledgewood.orgto do so.
