CLARIFICATION on Community Pools. Click to see the complete Palm Beach County Executive Order No. 2020-005.
Homeowner and condominium association pools are considered community pools and are allowed to reopen on April 29, 2020, under the conditions described in Palm Beach County Executive Order 2020-005. Those conditions include limitations on pool capacity, restrictions on pool deck seating and lounging, closure of shower and locker room facilities, restroom sanitation, and compliance with CDC social distancing guidelines. Also included is a requirement for on-site supervision to monitor and insure compliance with the restrictions.
We are aware that some associations may not have staff present at their pools and recreational facilities throughout the day. The restrictions on pool use and the supervisory requirement are designed to protect the users of the facilities. The association that is responsible for the pool needs to accept responsibility to insure that the pool and pool area are used responsibly under the conditions of the order. If that is not possible, the pool should not be reopened.
With that in mind, it will be acceptable for staff or management to delegate monitoring and compliance responsibilities to board members and community volunteers if they believe the pool can be operated safely and in compliance with the Executive Order. If these accommodations are unsuccessful, the pool should be closed until alternate monitoring arrangements are put in place.
