Water fitness classes can have 19 people per class. You can sign up by calling or stopping at the front desk, and there is no limit to how many classes per week, according to a PACC Facebook post .

A maximum of 50 people can be in the pool during open swim times, including anyone on the pool deck and lifeguards. Open swim time is first-come, first-serve. The PACC cannot take reservations for this. During open swim, the main pool, wading pool, slides and rock climbing wall are available. The sauna and whirlpool are not available at this time.

The PACC asks members to be aware of all other policies including wearing a mask at all times except while in the pool and keeping distance from others not in your household. Please keep these policies in mind as you are in the locker rooms as well, and be mindful and courteous of how much time you spend in the locker room.

The pool should continue to be open for the majority of April before constructions begins, according to the post.
