Pool Reopening

Dear Ledgewood Resident,

As a follow up to previous emails, the Ledgewood pool employee test results for Covid-19 came back positive.  Cuyahoga County Board of Health has been very helpful in guiding our contact tracing protocol, and anyone who could have possibly come in contact with the employee on Saturday and/or Sunday have received a separate communication.

After working with the Cuyahoga County Board of Health, we have been given approval to reopen the pool on Tuesday 7/28. Sign-Up Genius has been activated so that reservations for the pool can be made.

Our pool hours will continue to be the same:
Monday - Closed
Tuesday - 12:00-8:00
Wednesday - 12:00-8:00
Thursday - Closed
Friday - 12:00-8:00
Saturday - 12:00-8:00
Sunday - 12:00-8:00

Please remember that masks are a continued requirement while in the clubhouse and restrooms. Social distancing between households is expected and will be monitored.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation while we navigate this situation and reopen the pool.

Stay well,

Holly Zadony
Ledgewood Pool Trustee

Pool Covid Incident Update

Dear Ledgewood resident,

On 7/17, a staff member of the Ledgewood Pool was unknowingly exposed to somebody who later tested positive for COVID-19. Four days later, on 7/21, the staff member started exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 and was tested for the virus. We are currently waiting for the results.  If the results are positive, we will begin the process of contact tracing and will reach out to households that were at the pool during the time of possible exposure.

After being exposed on the evening of 7/17, the staff member worked open to close on Saturday 7/18 and 4-8pm on Sunday 7/19, before exhibiting first symptoms on Tuesday, 7/21. All policies and procedures were followed and the staff member was not exhibiting any symptoms during their shifts.  This is good news for residents and other staff members as the virus is most contagious following the onset of symptoms.

Again, we have not received the employee's test results, which could come back negative. But in the spirit of transparency, and out of an abundance of caution, we believe residents have a right to this information.

If you or a member of your household were at the pool on 7/18 during 12-8pm, or on 7/19 from 4-8pm, you may have come in contact with this staff member. The likelihood is very low that COVID-19 was spread over the weekend at the pool, but to be extra cautious, monitor yourself for symptoms of the virus. More information on symptoms can be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

The pool will remain closed until we have test results and implications can be determined.

All the best,
Lindsey Schneider and Holly Zadony
Ledgewood Pool Manager and Ledgewood Pool Trustee

Pool Closing

Hello Ledgewood Residents,

Out of an abundance of caution, the pool will be closed until further notice as we determine if there was the possibility of Covid-19 at the pool.  We will determine how we will move forward once we learn more about the situation, as we are awaiting test results.  For the time being, Sign-Up Genius has been disabled and future reservations are not being taken.

The health and safety of our residents and pool staff is our top priority and we are taking the proper precautions during this time.  Since the opening of the pool, we have been enforcing strict social distancing rules and requiring face masks while in the clubhouse and restrooms.  Our COVID Crew staff members sanitize hot touch zones every hour and we have our clubhouse and restrooms professionally cleaned daily.  Because of our strict protocol, the risk of catching the virus at Ledgewood Pool is, and always has been, extremely low.

We do not mean to alarm anyone but we believe it is necessary to inform the neighborhood of this development and close the pool for the time being.  We apologize for any inconvenience and we will keep you informed of the situation.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Stay well,

Holly Zadony
Ledgewood Pool Trustee

Additional Pool Rules During Covid Pandemic


Ledgewood residents,

Thank you for a truly great pool opening! We know this season has been very different from what we are used to, and we want to take a moment to thank you all for your patience as we navigate these uncertain times together.

As confirmed COVID-19 cases continue to rise in Cuyahoga County, we assure you that the safety of residents and staff is our top priority.
As such, please remember the following safety precautions are mandatory while at the Ledgewood Pool:

   * Masks are required to both enter and exit the facility through the
clubhouse.

   * Masks are required to use the bathrooms.

   * One-way arrows in the bathrooms must be followed.

   * A minimum of 6-feet of distance must be maintained between separate households at all times, including while inside the pool and on the pool
deck.

   * Reservations are required to access the pool. Please only reserve 1 two-hour timeslot per day. If additional timeslots are available, you may ask the front desk to extend your reservation while at the pool.

Additionally, starting this weekend, HOUSEHOLDS WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO SHARE TOYS WITH OTHER HOUSEHOLDS. This includes balls, diving toys, noodles, etc. While we understand that kids want to play with other neighborhood kids at the pool, we cannot allow toys to be shared between households while in the middle of a pandemic. Obviously, children can play how they please at home or at a friend's house, but they will be required to remain 6-feet apart from one another and cannot share toys while at the pool.

Finally, if you have a child under 12 years old, it is your responsibility to keep watch over your child while at the pool, meaning that you must be able to physically see your child at all times. Staff members are required to keep residents safe by lifeguarding the pool and enforcing social distancing, but it is ultimately the parent's job to keep watch over their child.

These rules are firm, and repeated failure to follow them will result in a written warning. If a household receives 3 written warnings, they will be suspended from the pool for one week. Following the suspension, a household can receive one final warning before being suspended for the season. Please see the below link for more information on rules that will result in written warnings. For a full list of Ledgewood Pool rules, visit ledgewood.org 

Ledgewood is one of very few pools to have opened this summer in Strongsville, and we are only able to remain so by following strict guidelines from the State of Ohio and the CDC. It is not our goal to be fun-suckers, but right now our top priority is keeping residents and staff safe. Ledgewood Pool's ability to stay open is dependent on everyone's compliance with our COVID-19 Protocol. We want nothing less than to keep this great space open for the whole community to enjoy, but we can only do that with your help.

Many thanks,
Lindsey Schneider
Ledgewood Pool Manager

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,

Ledgewood HOA Trustees
