In a Facebook post this week, the City of Delaware announced that Jack Florance Pool will remain closed for the 2020 season.
The decision to keep the pool closed this summer was not a decision made lightly or in haste. It was based on a number of factors, including very strict federal, state and local guidelines; economic feasibility; and restrictions on pool operations, including the requirement that social distancing be observed in the water.
The City of Delaware Recommendation, the Responsible RestartOhio Public Pools and Aquatic Centers Guidelines, and the Delaware General Health District Recommendation can be read here http://www.delawareohio.net/covid-19/
The Splash Pad and Skate Park remain closed indefinitely until the governor’s order on playgrounds changes. At the time the City will evaluate when either can be opened.
