Pool Rules

ASSOCIATION OF GREEN TRAILS PHASE II HOMEOWNERS, INC. 
 
 

A-Beautiful Pools, Inc and your community have worked diligently to adhere to CDC and Local/State Government to open your pools in such a way that mitigates risk for contracting COVID-19. **Please note that it is impossible to remove all risk and residents assume risk when attending the community facilities. Below is important information for you to prepare for your pool visit as well as being a part of a joint effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19 at the community pool.

Please complete a waiver for all adults and minors in your household that will participate in swimming at the community facility. https://Waiver.smartwaiver.com/v/abpgreentrails  Please download a copy of this waiver on your mobile device or print. Lifeguards will ask to see your completed waiver each time you attend the pool (only need to complete waiver once and show the same copy each time.)

COVID-19 Pool Policies for Residents

  1. Please do not enter the pool area if you or anyone in close contact with you have had symptoms of illness (fever cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell) in the past 72 hours. You should stay home until CDC’s posted isolation criteria are met.
  2. Waiver will need to be completed prior to visit. Gate guard will have a copy of the waiver to complete electronically if needed.

**This information in this release is not binding and can be adjusted at any time due to future releases of information from Local, State or National Government.

Resident Access- A-Beautiful Pools, Inc. will have a lifeguard at the front gate to check in residents, inform them of COVID-19 policies, check waiver is completed and confirm they have not had any COVID-19 symptoms in the last 72 hours. The gate guard will monitor capacity numbers.

Disinfecting- ABP lifeguards will disinfect gate entry, check in area and restrooms hourly. ABP will clean and disinfect stands, handrails, surfaces, restrooms, pump rooms, guard rooms, all doors, etc. each evening.

Capacity- During our first phase of opening, the pool capacity will be 45 at Gerri Ayers and 15-40 at Park Cypress *based on number of guards. This is subject to change based on staffing, local/state government, and phases of Open Texas.

Temporary pool closure considerations- The pool may be closed after opening if staff becomes sick or needs to quarantine, chemical levels are lower than 1ppm or further restrictions are implemented in our area. If a resident or staff member tests positive with COVID-19, higher level disinfecting and cleaning services will be required.

 
 
Our Lifeguards have full authority at our pools.  If you choose not to follow their instructions or posted pool rules, or are verbally abusive to them or to a pool committee member, you may receive an official warning and be asked to leave the premises.  For serious offenses, the constable may be called.  A second warning during the season will result in suspension of pool privileges for one month.
 
You must use your own access card to enter pool premises.  Do not ask other people to let you in.  Do not open the gate for people without their card.  Do not loan your card to others.
