POOL & SOCIAL DISTANCING RULES
(All Existing Pool Rules & Regulations Will Be Observed)
Social distancing is a public health practice that aims to prevent sick people from coming in close contact with healthy people in order to reduce opportunities for disease transmission of Covid-19.
GUEST RESERVATIONS | ONLINE RESERVATIONS
In our efforts to maintain the safest environment and limit overcrowding, we are requiring club members to preregister their guests with online reservations.
Guest Attendance is limited to no more than 2 guests per membership per day. We will be limiting our Guest Attendance to 25 guests per day. The Board will monitor attendance and increase the guest count should it be possible.
If you do not have a reservation or have more people in your group than indicated on the reservation, they will not be permitted into the Club facilities.
Please keep in mind you are permitted the same guest twice in a 30 day period.
Reservations can be made 48 hours in advance of your selected date.
Members may not make reservations on the behalf of other members or include other members in your reservation count.
As a courtesy to other members, if your guests are no longer able to make it to the pool, please cancel your reservation online. This will allow us to accommodate other members' guests.
Inclement weather (including thunder and lightning) or required closings will result in forfeiting partial or full reservation time. Members will need to exit the facilities to maintain social distancing.
THINK SWIM NOODLE. If you have not been fully vaccinated, you are required to wear a facial covering when in contact with Club associates, other members, and while using the locker rooms and restroom facilities.

HELP STOP THE SPREAD OF COVID-19
WHY PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING?
COVID-19 spreads mainly among people who are in close contact (within about 6 feet) for a prolonged period. Spread happens when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks, and droplets from their mouth or nose are launched into the air and land in the mouths or noses of people nearby. The droplets can also be inhaled into the lungs. Recent studies indicate that people who are infected but do not have symptoms likely also play a role in the spread of COVID-19.
It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes. However, this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. COVID-19 can live for hours or days on a surface, depending on factors such as sunlight, humidity, and the type of surface. Social distancing helps limit opportunities to come in contact with contaminated surfaces and infected people outside the home.
Although the risk of severe illness may be different for everyone, anyone can get and spread COVID-19. Everyone has a role to play in slowing the spread and protecting themselves, their family, and their community.
EVERYONE HAS A ROLE TO PLAY IN SLOWING THE SPREAD OF COVID-19 AND
PROTECTING THEMSELVES, THEIR FAMILIES, AND THEIR COMMUNITIES.
SOCIAL DISTANCING FOR THE 2021 SEASON
IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN FULLY VACCINATED, PLEASE WEAR YOUR MASK ENTERING & EXITING AND WHEN IN CONTACT WITH
CLUB ASSOCIATES & OTHER MEMBERS
THINK SWIM NOODLE
The Centers for Disease Control reports there is no evidence that COVID-19 can spread to people through the
water used in swimming pools. The Edgewood Club maintains the highest standards for proper pool operation and disinfection; including automated chemical monitoring 24/7 and scheduled weekly water testings required by the Allegheny County Health Department.
However, given the contagious nature of COVID-19, all members who opt to enjoy the Club's facilities, must understand the inherent risk of exposure to the coronavirus and adhere to the Club's Social Distancing Rules & Procedures mandated by the CDC and, Pennsylvania, and Allegheny County Health Departments.
DO NOT PLAN ON VISITING THE CLUB if you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, such as mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough and difficulty breathing, or any other symptoms associated with coronavirus as defined by the CDC.
DO NOT PLAN ON VISITING THE CLUB if you have come in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days or if you are at high risk of severe illness from the virus.
