Lots of new rules in place when pools reopen Monday in The Villages

There will be plenty of rules in place, including a one-hour limit, when swimming pools begin reopening Monday in The Villages.

Villages residents will have priority and the gates at the pools will be monitored. Swimmers are asked to stay 6 feet away from each other. Those heading to the pool should “come dressed to swim.” Showers will not be available. Swimmers must bring their own masks, disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer, Village ID and equipment.

Cones and arrows offer direction at the pool at Laurel Manor Recreation Center.
