HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - Gates were scheduled to open at 10 a.m. on Monday, but members lined up ahead of time at the Hasbrouck Heights Swim Club. A new era for the club opened in the age of coronavirus which will have new safety protocols for members and employees.
Before entering, members had their photos taken, so they can check in electronically, without the need for physical passes. It will also allow management a way to contact trace if the need should arise.
On the grounds, tables are separated by more than six feet, in keeping with Governor Murphy ongoing theme of social distancing. The picnic area has been converted for use by the lifeguards. It is part first aid station, part guard area, part COVID response area. Lifeguards will have their temperatures checked before signing in the for the day.
There is new signage through the facilities and pool. New Exit and Entrance signs will guide members through the breezeway. Signs on the pool stairs direct swimmers on how to enter and exit the pool.
The playground in the children's pool area and swing set on the main grounds are off limits. Ping pong and basketball are still available but members must supply their own equipment.
The pool has been scheduled to open on Saturday, May 23. While the pool's Executive Board had been making preparations, Mike Davis, president of the swim club board, said they had been waiting for the green light from the governor to open for the season, which officially came June 9.
The swim club will host an official flag raising and first jump on Saturday, June 27.
