Open Taramore Pool with slide and furniture
In response to the announcement on March 24 that the Taramore pool will reopen with the same 2020 restrictions (no slide, no chairs or umbrellas), Taramore residents implore that Pulte and Taramore HOA, et. al., reconsider these stringent restrictions in light of the new CDC guidelines as of February 2, 2021: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/parks-rec/aquatic-venues.html.
Following these updated guidelines, swimming facilities in TN, such as Soundwaves, are open with furniture and water slides.
These outdated restrictions deny residents basic amenities without any scientific support. Even in stricter states like California, residents have been using pools with both chairs and umbrellas (to provide coverage from the sun and skin cancer) since June 2020.
The developer and HOA should not continue a blanket policy to deny all residents basic pool amenities, particularly when the CDC states that there is not evidence of “COVID-19 spreading to people through water in pools, hot tubs, water playgrounds, or other treated aquatic venues” and other, larger corporations are operating pool facilities across the country without such restrictions.
Residents should be able to make an informed decision about whether to use the pool furniture and slide for their families.
