The SRRA Board of Directors met for their April board meeting with a full agenda. First, we are pleased to announce that John Dobrydney, Jr. will be the Sideburn Run Pool Manager for 2021. John comes to Sideburn Run via Fairfax Swim Club where he was a lifeguard for 5 years, assistant manager for one season, and the pool manager for one season. We also have a number of 2020 guards returning for the 2021 season. We still need additional guards, so if you know of a teenager who is sixteen or over and would like to be a lifeguard, have them contact our Operations Chairperson, Kathy Rushlow, at email@example.com. We're very excited about this summer and the lifeguarding and management team we have assembled.
In addition to the normal preparation for the pool opening on Memorial Day weekend, 29 May, the Board discussed how to adhere to the current COVID-19 guidance from state and local health departments while incrementally and safely returning to a pre-pandemic community pool experience. After much discussion, the SRRA Board of Directors has published the 2021 SRRA Pool Operating Rules.
Although we are currently under the same Phase 3 guidelines as we ended last season, the Board relaxed some of the additional rules implemented last season. The SRRA Board is confident we can make these adjustments based on a low infection rate for the 22032 and 22039 zip codes, a trending down of new cases of coronavirus infections throughout Fairfax County, and an increase in the number of people receiving vaccinations for this virus. We have lived with this virus for over a year now and we know what we need to do to stay healthy and safe. We will continue to observe social distancing, frequent hand washing and cleaning, and use of face masks. Here is a list of the major changes for 2021:
I and the rest of the members of the Sideburn Run Board of Directors hope that you agree that these restrictions are fair and in the best interests for the health and safety of every member of our amazing community pool.
Thank you for being a member of Sideburn Run! I look forward to seeing you on deck real soon!
