2020 Pool Rules and Regulations
As we continue to adapt to the ongoing changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we needed to make changes to how me operate the pools for the 2020 pool season. In order to comply with the strict heath guidelines set forth by the State of New Jersey, the following changes are going into effect.
To control the capacity of our pools we will be using color coded wrist bands that will allow residents time slots of two hours. (If the pools are not at capacity it’s to the guard’s discretion that you can stay past that slotted time) If the pools aren’t at capacity, we won’t need to use this system, but for now it’s what we have to do to stay in compliance.

Orange is for Lap Swim only at FCN 12:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m.
