July 21, 2020 (Moscow, Idaho) -- The City of Moscow is opening the Hamilton Lowe Aquatics Center (HLAC) Plunge Pool for lap swim only, beginning Jul. 22 through Sep. 4. The facility will be available for lap swimming from 11 am to 1 pm and 3:30 to 4:30 pm, seven days a week, for $3 per visit.
Health concerns related to the Coronavirus pandemic have required many delays and, ultimately, significant changes to the 2020 HLAC season. The adoption of additional precautions has allowed the opening of the facility in this limited capacity. Facility restrictions will include a maximum of 18 guests in the facility, with no more than three people per swim lane, with a 1-hour time limit per user. Guests are asked to protect themselves and others by not entering the facility when feeling unwell, wearing a face-covering when not in the water, and maintaining social distancing of six feet from members who are not part of the same household.
The activities pool and slides will remain closed for the remainder of the 2020 season. Also, private rentals of the facility will not be available this year. Season pass purchases and payments for swim lessons will be refunded by the end of Jul. 2020.
