McHugh Natatorium Closures and Updates
May 16-24: The steam room is closed for maintenance.
Beginning Wednesday, May 1 the lane closure procedures in the lap pool that have been in effect the past 2 months will discontinue. We have worked with DHEC for approval of revised procedures, which will allow all lanes to be available during open swim times. With this change, new signage will be posted that reads “NO LIFEGUARD ON DUTY SWIM AT YOUR OWN RISK” and “SWIMMING PERMITTED ONLY DURING SUPERVISED OPEN SWIM HOURS”. To meet the expectations of the new DHEC classification, we must post these signs, however swimming is still only permitted during posted open swim hours when staff supervision is present. Contact Jimmy Mullinax at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or concerns. Additionally, we anticipate resuming open swim hours on Saturdays beginning on May 18.
