A letter from our new Pool Manager
I am Aziza Solis, the new Head Manager for Tenakill Swim Club Summer 2021! I am excited to get the pool back up and running following the upending time since the pandemic began. I know there has been a lot of craziness, but we will try our best to make this summer a safe and fun one by the pool!
I am excited to share the goods news that after further consideration, chairs, tables, and umbrellas will be provided to members for use this summer, after all! We have also ordered disinfecting wipes (along with other PPE) that will be easily accessible before and after using the tables, chairs, and umbrellas to ensure it is safe for all our members and guests. These protocols, along with other COVID safeguards, will help keep Tenakill and every member, guest, and staff member safe this summer. Along similar lines, the original decision to switch Sunday hours from noon to 10:00 a.m. is no longer on the table. The pool will continue to open as always at noon so that the lifeguards can do deep cleaning from 10:00 a.m. until we open at 12:00 p.m., Adhering to these standards is essential for the benefit of everyone's safety and optimal health.
