City of AustinFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
City of Austin public pools will have a modified fall operating schedule beginning on Saturday, September 26.
In consultation with Austin Public Health and City leadership the Aquatic Division will reopen public pools using a modified fall operating schedule beginning on Saturday, September 26.
Re-establishment of modified operations was done after careful consideration of the local characteristics of the virus and related community priorities.
It's been determined that these re-openings may proceed safely during Stage 3: COVID-19: Risk-Based Guidelines.
PARD in consultation with the Austin Public Health Department continues to evaluate its system-wide operations on a daily basis. As risk stages decrease, further consideration will be given to additional incremental PARD openings. It is important to note, if conditions deteriorate, the Department will again close amenities/facilities.
