After much discussion and research, the Brookwood Board of Directors voted to open the community pool beginning Saturday, May 30. While we understand that this will result in an additional expense of approximately $2,000 in operating expenses, we believe it is in the best interest of our homeowners to proceed.
May 30th marks the current date for the beginning of Opening Idaho Stage 3 which allows for gatherings of 10 to 50 people. In making this decision, we considered the guidelines set by Governor Little, the Department of Health and Welfare, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and other Federal agencies. Our goal is to create as safe an environment as possible for our residents.
As such, we have implemented new guidelines for pool use during Stage 3.
- Pool hours will remain 6am to 10pm with 6am to 9am for adult swim.
- A waiver must be signed by each member of the household who wishes to use the pool. This is a legal prerequisite to opening the pool and required by the HOA attorney. Key card access to the pool will not be activated without completion of the waiver.
- For the period of May 30 to June 13, pool capacity will be limited to 50 people. We request that residents who use the pool actively self-monitor the number in attendance. If you or your family members arrive to the pool and see that occupancy is at its temporary limit of 50 people, please do not enter the pool area.
- Pool use will be for residents only, absolutely no guests from outside Brookwood will be allowed.
- Maintain social distancing and sanitation guidelines as established by the CDC.
- Do not enter the pool area if you are feeling ill or exhibiting symptoms commonly associated with the flu or Covid-19.
- Extra sanitation measures are in place. The HOA will provide hand sanitizer stations adjacent to the pool entrance, additional sanitation of the bathrooms at the end of each day, and all pool furniture will be sanitized after the pool closes each night.
- The board reserves the right to close the pool should the environment become unsafe or if there is a change to state or Federal guidelines.
As of this writing, our tentative plan for Stage 4 which is currently scheduled for June 13, the pool will be open with no occupancy restrictions. Brookwood residents will still need to sign a waiver to have their key card activated.
We appreciate your understanding that this remains a fluid situation and the board may need to close the pool or alter usage guidelines at any time it deems necessary or if there are changes to state or Federal guidelines.
