Councilmember Hans Riemer Says Swimming Pool Guidance to be Revised to 50% Capacity, Hopeful for 100%

Councilmember Hans Riemer tweeted a promising update this morning for those hoping pools will return to full capacity by this summer.

“Good news. Constituents have asked why swimming pool restrictions are more strict now than last summer. I followed up; guidance will be revised to allow 50% capacity, rather than less than 50%. Good for now, by summer I hope pools will be 100%. TBD.”

Per his tweet, guidance will now allow for 50% capacity at swimming pools. He also states that he is hoping for 100% capacity by the end of the summer.

A constituent responded to his tweet asking the follow, “Given the very limited evidence of outdoor transmission, can the council reconsider blanket closures on baby pools for our littlest constituents? I can actually wear a mask in a baby pool and I can’t in a regular pool, so these can be as safe as what’s allowed now.”

Riemer replied with “Great point. I’ll follow up.”
