Memorial Day & Updated COVID Guidelines

Memorial Day & Updated COVID Guidelines

It was so nice to see all the happy faces at the pool opening weekend! It certainly was a great weekend to be swimming. Sadly, the weather won’t be as warm for the Memorial Day holiday weekend, but the pool will still be open for fun!* On Monday, the pool will be open with "weekend" hours: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. (plus lap swim for the early risers, 6:30 to 7:30 a.m.).

As predicted, we are making more changes to the KGRC Covid-mitigation protocols. The Governor of Virginia has lifted nearly all such restrictions. Taking the latest federal, state, and local guidelines into consideration, the Board made the following changes:

Beginning this weekend…

  • KGRC’s Covid-mitigation protocols will follow the Virginia Governor's guidelines in accordance with state and local health departments, and the Centers for Disease Control. 

    • KGRC will no longer require masks, however Virginia's newest Executive Order #79 states “individuals in the Commonwealth aged five and older should cover their mouth and nose with a mask in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance.” (CDC Guidelines for vaccinated individuals HERE and unvaccinated individuals HERE.)

    • Capacity restrictions are lifted, so we will operate at a normal capacity level. (Note that on busy days, the club sometimes reaches full capacity which may require a wait.) 

    • Changing rooms and showers are now available for use. 

Beginning June 1st:

  • Guests of KGRC Members will be allowed beginning June 1 with guest passes. You may purchase guest passes online HERE.  Guest passes are required for all guests, even if they are not swimming.

Just like everywhere else, KGRC will slowly get back up to speed with normalcy. Stay tuned for more information on grills, games, and even social events.
