PLEASE READ BEFORE VISITING POOL
- All persons who are present within the jurisdiction of the City of Raleigh are required to wear a clean face-covering any time they are, or will be, in contact with other people who are not household members in public or private spaces where it is not possible to maintain social distance or where recommended social distancing practices are not being followed. Noted exceptions are:
- It is not required to wear face coverings during individual exercise outdoors, or while walking or exercising with other people from the same household, as long as social distance from others is maintained.
- In settings where it is not practical or feasible to wear a face covering, including when obtaining or rendering goods or services, such as the receipt of dental services or while swimming.
- Lost wristbands will be replaced at a cost of $10 per wristband – the cost will be added to your Master Association account
The Silver Lake Pool will be open beginning Thursday, June 18th. Our current plan is to keep the pool open through Sunday, September 13th, 2020, but there may be scheduling changes required by our experience with pool usage, determination of need for (and funding for) the pool monitor and/or any additional Executive Orders from the Governor or directives from the NCDHHS.
The following rules will be in effect in addition to the regular pool rules. These may be subject to change according to guidance as noted above. The Silver Lake Masters HOA Board also may choose to close the pool if rules and guidelines are not being followed.
- Residents only will be allowed into the pool and cabana area – no guests for the time being due to the need to limit occupancy numbers.
- If you, or anyone in your household is currently showing any signs of COVID-19 or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 less than 14 days previously, you may not use the pool. Additionally, if you have been in contact with someone showing any signs of COVID-19 or diagnosed with COVID-19 less than 14 days previously, you may not use the pool.
- Homeowners will be asked to show proof of residency, either with a Driver License or received mail such as a utility bill and to acknowledge they have read and understand the rules on their first visit to the pool. They will then be given wristbands which should be worn anytime they are using the pool or cabana.
- The operating hours for the pool will be (until further notice) daily from 10 AM to 8 PM. The pool may close for an hour once or twice a day to clean and sanitize. Cabana hours will be the same as the pool.
- There will be a limit of 2 hours of pool use if there are other residents waiting to access the pool.
- A pool monitor will be on duty to monitor access and perform additional sanitizing of pool and cabana areas as much as possible.
- The number of people allowed in the pool, on the pool deck and utilizing the cabana will be limited according to the state guidelines; those maximums will be:
- 13 in the pool
- 26 on the pool deck
- 9 in the cabana
- There should be no more than 2 people utilizing the bathrooms at a time.
- We request, and highly recommend, that residents wear masks when not in the pool.
- Please maintain the recommended 6 feet of distance from others not in your household.
- Furniture should be sanitized before and after use. Please do not move the pool furniture.
- All “Lost and Found” items will be discarded at the end of the day.
- Do not share items such as food, drinks or pool toys with non-household members.
- One grill will remain available for use in the cabana area during the open hours; we ask that residents who wish to use the grill bring their own utensils and sanitize the surfaces after using. Use of the grill will be at your own risk as well.
- While the Silver Lake Masters HOA board is committed to taking steps to make the pool as safe as possible, some responsibility also lies with the residents of the community; users are responsible for wiping down surfaces, social distancing within the facility as publicly recommended or required, and using personal protective equipment (gloves, masks, etc.) in accordance with CDC requirements, or requirements of State of North Carolina, Wake County or the City of Raleigh. Even with enhanced cleaning and monitoring practices, use of the pool is AT YOUR OWN RISK.
If you have further questions or comments, please contact Jessica or Tom at Omega Management, and they will forward to the board. We thank all our residents for doing their part to make the cabana and pool – and all our neighborhood – a safe shared experience. THANK YOU!
