The City has received numerous calls about the reopening of pools in multi-family developments. Last week, Broward County issued an order allowing these pools, as well as other recreational venues like parks and golf courses, to reopen with restrictions.

It is the individual housing development’s responsibility to reopen the pools in multi-family developments. They must follow requirements in the County order, which include ensuring that pools are only used by residents of the development. In addition, the CDC’s 6-foot social distancing guidelines must be followed, and pools must be supervised by housing development employees or designated individuals. They must also be sanitized on a regular basis. Pools and pool decks are limited to 50% capacity or less.

For more details on the County’s requirement, read the County’s Emergency Order 20-08 at https://www.broward.org/CoronaVirus/Documents/EmergencyOrder20-08.pdf.
