Bayard Swimming Pool

pool closed 2020

In light of continued COVID-19 safety concerns, the City of Bayard has decided not to open the Bayard Swimming Pool for the 2020 swimming season.

This difficult decision was made by City officials due to concerns that the social distancing measures could not be adequately enforced in an aquatic environment.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread through properly treated water. However, there is a definite concern the virus could be spread in the pool bathhouses, restrooms, on pool ladders, slides, and pool lounge chairs. Based on these and many other factors, it has been determined that in the interest of public health the pool will remain closed for the summer of 2020.

City of Bayard Pool Staff welcomes you to our pool. In order for you and / or your child to use the pool facilities the following regulations and release must be read and completed. It is impart that you discuss the rules and regulations concerning pool use with your children and that you impress upon them the importance of the following rules and regulations. We would ask that you have a plan for picking up your child from the pool in case the pool is closed because of inclement weather. The safety of you and your child is our first and foremost concern. We hope you enjoy your visit with us. Have a fun and safe summer.

Please remember that the pool is a recreation facility. If you find you must leave your child at the pool for the entire afternoon, please send them with adequate sunscreen and an emergency phone number.

Should there be a malfunction in equipment or some other problem arises necessitating closing the pool, your child will be dismissed. Therefore, all children should have an adult they can contact to pick them up at a moment’s notice or a safe place to go should an emergency or unforeseen closing arise.
Finally, we are asking that you and your child have a storm-warning plan. Should inclement weather arise, your children need to know what they are to do – are they to wait for someone to pick them up or are they to go to a pre-designated storm shelter?

Therefore, it is in the best interest of you and your children to have discussed and prepared a storm-warning plan. Pool personnel will do all they can to keep your children calm during a bad storm. This would include getting them to a place of safety if necessary. However, this could be quite a task as we have many children to care for. Therefore, please prepare and discuss a storm-warning plan with your children for their sake.

With your cooperation and understanding, we know we will have a fun, safe and enjoyable swimming season. We are looking forward to a great summer!
