COVID-19 POOL & SAFETY UPDATE
As you all know, we have experienced an increase in COVID-19 cases in our city, county and state. If a "Stay At Home Order" does go into place for Solano County the Cunningham Pool will remain open. We will continue to run practices as usual. However, all meets will be canceled duing a "Stay At Home Order". 
 
As we are coming into cold and flu season, we also want to remind everyone to adhere strictly to our safety protocols. Please make sure to keep your swimmer home if they answer yes to any of the following:
--Swimmer has had a fever in the last 24 hours. 
--Swimmer has experienced the following in the last 24 hours: cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell or other symptoms related to COVID-19 as listed by the CDC.
--A member of the swimmer’s household has symptoms or tested positive for COVID-19.
--Swimmer has been exposed to someone who has symptoms or tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 14 days. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
REMINDER - VJO TEAM SUITS & CAPS MANDATORY AT ALL MEETS
This is a reminder that VJO Team Suits and Team Caps are mandatory at all meets. I know it has been close to 10 months since most of our swimmers have competed and it has been brought to my attention that many of our VJO swimmers team suits are too small now. Please do your best to be in a VJO team suit at the upcoming meet.  If your old team suit does not fit please get a new team suit ordered ASAP. Contact Coach Jennifer if you have any problems with your team suit for the upcoming meet on November 14th.  Below I have included the link and info to order a VJO team suit.

ALL SWIMMERS MUST BE IN A TEAM SUIT AT MEETS

PRACTICE PROTOCOL PROCEDURES- CUNNINGHAM POOL
All VJO swimmers and families attending practice at the Cunningham Pool must read through our "Practice Protocol Procedures" PDF for Cunningham Pool.  We need all swimmers to know what to expect when they arrive for practice at the Cunningham Pool. The PDF will teach our swimmers the new protocol and procedures that we will be following at the Cunningham Pool.  These procedures are similar to both the American Canyon and Benicia Pool.
