Dear Merrimack Families,

We hope this message finds you and your families safe and healthy.

In light of the current challenges presented by the COVID 19/Coronavirus pandemic, the Merrimack Pool Board has been monitoring developments, both nationally and locally. In addition, we have been in communication with Georgetown Aquatics, our pool management company, with regard to pre-season preparation and related issues. We are evaluating different scenarios and provide the following information:

• Given the uncertainty around this pandemic and its trajectory, we are deferring Summer 2020 registration at this time.
• We will continue to assess conditions and developments, and of course monitor any local or national order/mandates/guidelines.
• In the event that we open late – sometime after our current May 16 opening date – we will recalculate summer dues to reflect a shorter season.
• In the event that we are unable to open for the season, we anticipate the assessment of a small maintenance fee per family to cover the fixed costs of keeping the pool and facility in good condition through the summer and balance of the year.

We will continue to assess conditions, and expect to provide another update on opening and registration by April 15, 2020.

Everyone on the waitlist as of March 20 will be invited to register for the season at such time as registration opens.

Please know that the pool board is doing its best to stay abreast of developments and to consider plans of action that enable us to use the pool, while keeping the health and welfare of our members the most important consideration.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this tumultuous time.

With wishes for your safety and good health,

The Merrimack Pool Board
