As we prepare for the meet tomorrow, I wanted to take this opportunity to
discuss protocols for face masks and social distancing. Currently California
has been easing up on many of the restrictions in regards to COVID-19
measures which has led to confusion on what we are doing as a team.
Hopefully this email will clear it up what the requirements are and why we
need to follow them.
-All adults should wear a mask while on Rosemont High School property
-Swimmers should wear a mask during warm up and then remove the mask
when ready to enter the pool
-Social distancing is encouraged while on property
As part of our rental agreement with Sacramento City Unified School
District to rent the pool facilities at Rosemont, we are required to wear face
masks and encourage social distancing while on their property. Failure to
comply with these terms can result in losing the pool rental which would
effectively put our season on hold until we are able to transition to the pool
the Cordova Community Pool when it is ready in 4-6 weeks. As a
governmental organization, Cordova Recreation & Park District is held to
a higher standard and is expected to take measures to ensure that all
programs go above and beyond any and all guidelines recommended
by the Sacramento County Health Department.
When evaluating guidelines, CRPD also must take into consideration
the size of the program. Currently we have 130 swimmers enrolled in our
program. Even if we only have one family member accompany a swimmer
to practice or a meet, we would have approximately 260 people at
Rosemont. A group of this size, even outdoors, must comply to additional
guidelines. CRPD has also reminded their staff of the importance of these
Please let us know if you have any questions.
