Columbus Grove Updated Pool Reopening Policy (07/15/20)
 
The following updated pool reopening policy will go into effect on Wednesday, July 15, 2020, which coincides with CDC-endorsed health and safety protocols as the Association’s top priority is the health and safety of all residents. Effective July 15th there will be no pool attendant at the entry gate, however the pools will still be monitored daily. If we find that the pool is above the posted occupancy, our staff will make every effort to avoid closing the pools, however if residents cannot adhere to the guidance, we will close the pool immediately. The modified new rules for amenity use are:
 
Hours of Operation: Monday – Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • 8:00 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. Lap Swimming (Group 1)
  • 8:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. Lap Swimming (Group 2)
  • 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. Senior Use Only (60+)
  • 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. Closed for Cleaning
  • 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. General Use (Group 1)
  • 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. Closed for Cleaning
  • 2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. General Use (Group 2)
  • 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. General Use (Group 3)
Reservation System
  • Residents must be registered to the Association website at columbusgrovehoa.com to make reservations.
  • To begin, click on the “Members” dropdown from the menu at the top of the page. Next, click on “RSVP” which will take you to the various sessions and dates available to register for at both pool locations.
  • One week at a time will be posted. A maximum of three (3) reservations per swimming session may be made in any seven (7) day period per household.
  • If you made a reservation and can no longer use it, please be sure to cancel your reservation to help make sure all the available spaces are used by other community members & families.
  • There will be no walk-ins. Residents may NOT use the pool without a reservation.
  • No guests are allowed. Due to limited capacity, Columbus Grove residents will take priority and will only be permitted at this time.
  • Maximum number allowed to register will be up to six (6) members of your household for General Use Swimming and up to two (2) for Lap & Senior Swimming Sessions.
  • For every 3 children, there must always be 1 adult supervisor present, as defined by pool and spa rule 18.1.5. per the Columbus Grove Association governing documents.
Pool Key Fobs
  • There will be no pool attendant to check you in. Once it has been determined that we have a signed waiver from your household address, key fobs associated with the property address registered will be activated for reserved swim time slots. Click here to download a copy of the waiver if you have not already signed one and email it to: columbusgrovefm@powerstonepm.com
  • Key fobs will only open one gate at each pool location:
    • Grove House Pool – North Gate
    • Sweet Shade Pool – Front Main Gate
  • Please do not use your key fob to open the gate for someone who cannot gain entry using their key fob or who does not have a key fob.  If someone cannot access the pool area, chances are they are not authorized to be there. 
Thank you, in advance, for your cooperation and support in honoring these new rules. We look forward to keeping our amenities open for as long as these health and safety measures are followed. It will take the cooperation and consideration of all residents to allow us to keep our pools open. We will continue to monitor state and local regulations related to the use of our amenity spaces, and will adjust our guidance along the way, if needed.
 
User Capacity
Initially, the pool facilities will operate at 25% normal capacity. This number may be changed over time. It is the intention of the Association to increase the capacity over time. However, the determination as to an increase or decrease in capacity will be made based upon directives from governmental authorities and appropriate use by residents adhering to the rules and guidelines.

Spa and wader pools will be limited to one household at a time.
 
Restrooms
Restrooms will be limited to one household at a time. Please be respectful and ensure the restrooms are not currently in use prior to entry.
