Wynds Updates - Pools / Courts / Exercise Room
The Wynds pools will not be open for Memorial Day. (Please see the full explanation below.) Opening day has yet to be determined. However, our basketball and tennis courts will be open for Memorial Day weekend! In accordance with the Governor’s reopening plan, we intend to open our fitness center on June 1st. Please clean equipment before and after use and practice social distancing! Thank you!
Wynds Recreation - Pools
Under the federal Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act (15 U.S.C. 8003, Title XIV, Sec. 1404), Section 2: “public pools” are defined as any swimming pool (B)(1) “open exclusively to members of …a residential real estate development…” Further, Kentucky Administrative Rules (902 KAR 10:120), Section 2 (46), defines “public swimming facilities” to include “those operated by communities, subdivisions…” Therefore, we must abide by any and all rules for public pools. Additionally, the only way we can open the pools is after they have cleared inspection by the Northern KY Health Department. The NKYHD has stated that if any pool opens without their inspection, they will immediately chain the pool and revoke our license.
As you are probably aware, Governor Beshear announced last week that public swimming pools will not be included in Phase 1 or Phase 2 of the business re-opening plan, so May and June are expected for pools to be closed. Further, Public Health Commissioner Dr. Steven Stack declared that all pools would be closed through to the end of June, at least. (Pools in Lexington have already been closed through the end of August.) "There's just almost no way you can put together a whole bunch of kids and people, at a public pool and not have folks socializing and violating the social distancing rules of greater than six feet. It's just not pragmatically possible," Dr. Steven Stack said at the time.
Many swim clubs, especially those that conduct competitive swim meets during the summer, have submitted plans to ask for permission to open earlier. In order to even submit a plan, it must address:
As we have no way to address the requirements to request a plan to open the pool, we are at the mercy of the Governor and the NKY Health Department. Our hope is that these guidelines will be eased sooner rather than later, and we will be able to open our pools, tennis courts, basketball courts, and fitness center. We don’t like this any more than you do, but we hope that our homeowners can understand that the Wynds Board is doing what we must do to follow the law and keep our community safe.
