IMPORTANT UPDATES:
 
 
COVID UPDATES AT CUNNINGHAM POOL
The Cunningham Pool has updated a few of their COVID Policies. The following COVID policies are all effective as of Thursday, June 17th 2021:
  • Parents Allowed in Stands - VJO families and parents are now allowed to view practices from the stands inside the pool deck area. All spectators must still enter through the main entrance. VJO parents are not allowed down on the pool deck with the swimmers and coaches. After entering through the office all spectators must go straight to the stands.
  • Face Masks - Masks are no longer required outdoors when on the Cunningham pool deck. Masks must still be worn when entering the facility (going through the office), but may be taken off when on the pool deck outdoors. Masks are still required when in the restrooms.
  • Lane Capacity - There is no longer a limit to the number of athletes per lane at the Cunningham Pool. However, VJO will still continue to social distance swimmers while on the deck and during practice. Our goal is to keep swimmers spread out to 1-3 swimmers per lane. We will let everyone know if this changes.
  • Locker Rooms - STILL CLOSED
