Reopening of Community Pools Includes Strict Guidelines

The City of Deerfield Beach announces that it will begin a phased approach to its reopening plan on Wednesday, April 29, 2020, in coordination and in compliance with Broward County, State of Florida and federal guidelines for “Opening Up America.”

This first phase of the plan includes the reopening of swimming pools located within multi-family developments, condominium developments, condominium hotels, or single-family homeowner associations and maintain six (6) foot social distancing guidelines as well as limiting to no greater than 50% capacity. Additionally, management at these developments must comply with the following conditions:

  • Pool and pool deck are to be used only by current residents of the development.
  • Face coverings are worn at all times by individuals seeking to access the pool or pool deck through areas where such social distancing cannot be maintained, including in elevators, doorways, and hallways. (Face coverings do not need to be worn while swimming.)
  • Employees of the development must sanitize the pool chairs, railings, gates, tables, showers, and other equipment after each individual use or all furnishings are to be removed from the pool deck
  • Pool and pool deck areas are to be supervised at all hours in which they are open by a sufficient number of employees or other person(s) designated by the housing development to ensure appropriate social distancing as recommended by current CDC guidance.
