COVID-19 FAQs

(updated May 25, 2021)


PSC is a non-profit organization governed by a volunteer board made of bondholders.

The club operates with an annual budget of more than $300,000 sustained by memberships and other activities. Your membership contributions make our summers possible.

 

Q: When will PSC open for the 2021 season?

A: As of now, we plan to open May 29th. We will be operating under a safety plan again this year to maintain a safe and enjoyable environment for all of our members. The plan will adhere to CDC and local guidelines. You can find the link to this plan by clicking on the link PSC Policy.  We will continue to monitor any changes to those guidelines.

 

Q: Can I still buy my membership?

A: Yes!

 

Q: How are the improvements coming?

A: The improvements have been completed.

 

Q: Are you taking any extra steps to prepare this summer in light of COVID-19?

A: Yes, as was the case last year, we are committed to creating the safest environment for all of our members. In order to do so, we will continue the staff health screening, as well as the self-certification will be done with each member and staff upon arrival on the property, frequent cleaning and proper social distancing procedures will be followed.  For more details, please read the PSC COVID-19 policy.

 

Q: Where can I find out more about the restrictions and guidelines?

A: The CDC Guidelines for pools such as ours can be found below:

Q: I have purchased guest passes, will I be able to use them this season?

A: As we did last season, we have extended the expiration date for Guest Passes. Guest Passes purchased this year and for the 2020 season are valid for two years.

 

Q: What happens to my membership if the club doesn’t open at all?

A: In the unlikely event the club is prevented from opening, members who have paid in full will have 2 options from which to choose:

  1. The club will issue a credit towards next year’s membership
  2. The club will issue a refund, minus a 10% operations fee. (see above).

Please consider this:  Given the necessary expenditures that are incurred, even in the unlikely event the pool cannot open PSC will still be responsible for expenses. This includes things like taxes, insurance, landscaping, pool chemicals, repairs, maintenance, and much more.  The board is taking special care to limit spending wherever possible.

 

Q: Is the camp opening this season?

A: The camp is planning to open.  Please refer to their website for more information.

 

Q: Will there be a swim team this summer?

A: Yes! The Suburban Swim League has approved a summer swim team season. Enhanced safety protocols and COVID 19 guidelines will be in place. Register here: https://pscgators.swimtopia.com.

 

Q: Can I still reserve a large party with guests?

A: Reservations for large parties will be considered if they are in accordance with Commonwealth guidance for group gatherings.

 

Q: I want to get involved, how can I become one of the people who makes the decisions and makes things happen?

A: Members are welcome to volunteer on our committees this and every season.  Board Members are volunteers who meet regularly all year long and work on committees, research, and special projects between meetings.  To become a Board Member you must be a bondholder who maintains your membership paying full dues every season, and be voted in at the General Meeting on Labor Day Weekend or by provisional vote at a regular board meeting.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

We all share the responsibility to ensure the club is safe for members during this unprecedented situation.
