7.1.2020 Update

* The pool will open on July 3 if Virginia moves into Phase III on July 1 as planned. If the move to Phase III is delayed, the pool opening will be delayed.

We are excited to open the pool!!! However, the Virginia Phase III Guidelines make pool usage more restrictive than a normal summer.

To remain in compliance with the Virginia Safer at Home: Phase III Guidelines, in addition to our normal pool rules, the Association has incorporated special rules on capacity, social distancing and cleaning.

To comply with state and county regulations, we ask that you familiarize yourself with these COVID-19 related rules in addition to our normal Pool Rules.

The Association will continue to monitor State and County guidance and will adjust these rules as necessary.

Pool Management, lifeguards, HOA staff, and Board members retain the right to ask anyone to leave who is not following these rules. Pool users not following the rules may lose their pool access privileges. 

It is important that these rules are followed so that the pool can remain open.

Documents containing these Special Rules, our normal Pool Rules, and the Covid-19 Questionnaire are available on our Documents Page under COVID-19 Documents.

Board members will be available at the pool on Saturday, May 28, Sunday, May 29, Saturday, June 4, and Sunday June 5 from 11 am to 1 pm for those owners/authorized residents who have not picked up their decals.  Decals will only be issued to owners/residents where the annual assessment has been paid.  Owners/residents may pay any annual assessment due to the Board members present on the dates and times listed above.

Note about Memorial Day Weekend:  Decals for owners who mailed in their applications for decals - that were received by Friday, May 27 - will be available at the front desk in the pool lobby for pick up.  The number of decals requested on the application will be placed in envelopes labeled with the applicants' name.  If there are any problems with the number of decals contained in the envelopes, the pool desk attendants (the life guards) will NOT be able to issue additional decals.  Only Board members present at the pool during the above listed dates and times or Cardinal Management (during regular office hours) will be able to issue additional decals.  

If an application for decals only was mailed but not received by Friday, May 27, applicants may fill out another application and receive decals from the Board members present at the pool during the above listed dates and times.
