The PKWHOA Board of Directors is working diligently to ensure the opening of our pool in 2021. There are two factors affecting how and when this will happen: mandates from The Oregon Health Authority and Washington County regarding pool operations, and repairs to the pool restrooms water supply.
As of April 23, 2021, Washington County is in the High-Risk category regarding COVID-19. Among other restrictions, occupancy in the pool area would be limited to 15% of maximum capacity. According to OHA, “Public Pools and Spas must remain closed in Extreme Risk Level counties…” They also reported, “the next assignment of risk levels will be announced May 4 and take effect May 7.”
As of April 24th, the cause of the leak to the pool restrooms has been discovered and plans have been made to repair it. The contractor is hopeful that the job will be completed in the next two weeks. The water to the pool and the clubhouse cannot be turned on until this is done.
The opening of the pool will be on the agenda for the next Board Meeting on May 10th.
Update April 28th: The water is back on. The pool deck above the repair should be restored in the next few days.
Also, it looks like Washington County will remain in the “High Risk” category for the next couple weeks.
