Covid-19 Safety Measures at the RBAC

  • Doors that are staffed within the facility, except for specific doors that would provide added protection and security to the building or staff areas, will be propped open and to provide a touch-free experience when in use.
  • Enhanced cleaning of high-touch surfaces throughout the day;  hand-sanitizer is also available.
  • Lockers rooms are currently not available.
  • Bring your filled water bottle with you. Water bottle filling stations are open but the water fountains are not available.
  • All shared pool equipment shall be prohibited for any non-RBAC led program.
  • Directional signage will be utilized to guide individuals in appropriate foot traffic to provide physical distancing.
  • The use of stanchions, signage, cones, markers, and tape will be used to delineate patrons routes and the best way to proceed throughout the facility.
  • Please refrain from spitting in the gutters during your swim. 
  • Snorkels may not be used while at our facility, as the use of snorkels can contribute to the spread of COVID- 19 more than normal under-water exhalation and side breathing.
