Unfortunately, Junior Lifeguard Swim Tests are canceled or on hold until further notice. We will look to reschedule our swim test dates if possible. We will leave a credit on your recreation account for all cancellations. We will update the website with added swim test dates as we have them available.
Our priority is to protect the welfare, safety, and well-being of all participants, while also protecting the health and safety of our Lifeguards and staff. The City supports the CDC and OCHCA recommendations to use every day preventative measures such as; washing hands frequently, use hand sanitizer, avoiding touching your face with dirty hands, cleaning and sanitizing surfaces, and staying home when you are sick.
Please know that these decisions do not come lightly and are made with the best interest of our patron’s health and safety in mind. We will continue to assess our operations daily and consult with OCHCA for recommendations and possible further changes. We will keep you informed of any necessary changes as information becomes available. We appreciate your support and understanding as we adapt to this fluid situation.
