Dear Holland Community Aquatic Center Guests, Members, and Supporters,

These past weeks have been difficult for all of us and I hope this finds each of you well. Thank you for your commitment to each other’s safety. We miss you!

Last Friday we received additional direction from the Governor, which extends Michigan’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order. This direction requires our facility to remain closed to the public and to non-essential staff members through May 15. Here’s what we are doing now to ensure that we will be able to allow you to return to the Aquatic Center safely, when the time comes:

  • Working to equip our team with all necessary masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, additional cleaning supplies, or PPE.
  • Updating policies and procedures to align with aquatic center best practices from across the country to ensure our staff understands how to identify and stop the spread of COVID-19.
  • Evaluating our facility common areas and planning out the best ways to keep them properly sanitized.
  • Identifying social distancing methods that will allow us to keep everyone safe when they return to the Aquatic Center.
  • Preparing our pools and other public spaces to re-open.

For all affected members, we remain committed to extending the duration of those memberships equal to the number of days of closure to allow you to use the Aquatic Center’s services in the future.

We hope that you are staying at home and safe, and we look forward to seeing you back here at our Aquatic Center soon!

Hello Holland Aquatic Center members,

I hope this finds each of you home, safe and well. Thank you for helping to slow the spread of this COVID-19 virus that has affected each of our lives greatly. A big thank you to our Holland Hospital Health Care Team who are there for those in need in our area through this crisis.

To support our valued health care workers and to achieve the best possible outcome for each of us our Aquatic Center will remain closed until it is determined we can safely open. Today, we are advised to remain closed through Thursday, April 30 but this date may be extended. We will continue to update you as we receive additional direction from our public officials.

You may also know we continue to work on planning for our renovation and construction project. As soon as we are allowed to safely begin, our construction team will begin with parking lot enhancements. We are also planning to pour foundations for our new building this summer! Stay tuned for much more!

Things to know:

  • If you have a current membership, the number of days of this closure will be added to your membership ending date.
  •  All affected programs/class participants will receive a future program/class credit, to be used when our facility resumes services.

To stay connected with us during this closure, follow us on Facebook and Instagram! We look forward to having everyone back in the water, but in the meantime, stay home, stay safe.

We’ll see you all soon!

Dear Holland Community Aquatic Center Members and Guests,
 
We have been closely monitoring the recommendations of our public officials regarding the Coronavirus/COVID-19 situation. At this time we understand that it is in the best interest of our community to close our facility to the public. We have made the difficult decision to close to the public beginning today at 1:00 p.m. and through end of March. During this time and in order to employ some of our staff, we will attempt to accomplish our normal large-scale pool shutdowns and maintenance projects so when we are allowed to open these items will have been completed.
 
At this time we can provide the following information:

  • If you have a current membership, the number of days of this closure will be added to your membership ending date.
  • All affected program/class participants will receive a future program/class credit.

Please continue to check hollandaquaticcenter.org and our social media channels for updates.

Thank you for your continued understanding and patience during this unprecedented time. We are dedicated to the health and safety of the whole community, and will continue to follow the advice of our public officials. We look forward to reopening our facility to the public as soon as possible.

Thank you,

Jack Huisingh
Executive Director
