From the CDC site:

There is no evidence that the virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to people through the water in pools, hot tubs, or water playgrounds. Additionally, proper operation of these aquatic venues and disinfection of the water (with chlorine or bromine) should inactivate the virus.

Many pools are starting to reopen across the state and country. We now know that while VA did not allow pools to initially open, many community pools in this area are now opening up, and many in some of the largest HOA-managed properties in Fairfax County. They have found safe ways to manage the number of people in pools and access to related facilities and we believe that Kingstowne management can also determine a safe way to do this. We would like KROC to find a way to open the pools as soon as possible, and keep them open as late as possible. We understand that this could be hard, and could require finding a new pool management company, but we think the effort is worth it.

While it sounds like they are working on a plan for the fitness centers, we would also like them to think out of the box to open these as soon as possible. If we are not using the community centers (especially at Snyder), some of the machines and equipment could be moved upstairs to allow for proper distancing.

The next Board of Trustees meeting is on July 8th. It looks like I have a confirmed speaker slot. They do not want multiple speakers on the same side of a subject so I will be speaking on behalf of this effort. We may also request a special meeting, and this petition may do that as well. To show additional support for this, and/or a special session, please email Or if you want to send your feedback directly to them, please send your thoughts at any time to that email. The more emails they get, the more responsive they might be.

(In order to ensure relevancy for all signatures, I've added a required field for the name of your neighborhood.)
