The Perry Hall Swim Club on Cliffvale Road has been closed after it was reported that two employees have tested positive for the coronavirus. According to the swim club’s Board of Trustee meetings minutes from July 1, two lifeguards test positive for COVID-19, but both lifeguards appeared to have contracted the virus outside of the swim club.
The minutes could not go into further detail because of HIPPA laws, but did reveal that the lifeguards worked at the pool on June 22, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28 and 30. Perry Hall Swim Club released an official statement.
“We have received many emails and questions over the past few days. We have been hard at work for the past few days. We are also sending well wishes to all our staff and members that we all stay healthy. We will continue to update you as we have more information,” said a statement on social media.
“It is our (The board of trustees) goal to be as transparent as possible to all our members. Please feel free to check our website for the meeting minutes from our monthly Board of Trustee meetings. We have everyone’s health and well being in mind but also hope to always provide a family friendly atmosphere for our families to enjoy. We take all suggestions and emails under consideration and appreciate your patience with us this spring and summer while we navigate this life with COVID.”
The swim club also added that the pool will be deep cleaned and they are looking into having a COVID certified company clean the pool. Members were reminded to wear a mask at the snack bar and for parents to not allow kids to hang out in the bathroom.
Perry Hall Swim Club did not give a date to reopen.
