The Redován City Council will open the doors of its municipal swimming pool next Wednesday, July 1, once all measures have been taken to do so safely for municipal staff and users. “At first, and always thinking about the safety and health of the people of Redován, not opening was considered this summer,” reported Nely Ruiz, mayor of the municipality. But the councilor added that “after confirming the improvement of the sanitary situation with the end of the state of alarm, we have worked and studied how to proceed with its reopening so that our neighbors have the option of being able to cool off safely this summer and caution ”. The facilities will be available for bathing during the months of July and August.
For his part, the Councilor for Sports, Ramón López, explained that “we have developed a series of measures based on the regulations set by the Valencian Government and which will be signposted and visible throughout the premises in order to enjoy this environment safely ” Thus, with a capacity less than 75%, users must access with a mask in groups of less than twenty people, and they must maintain the safety distance of 1.5 meters at all times. It will also be necessary “cleaning and disinfection of hands and footwear before entering and the mandatory use of a towel when using the sun loungers,” explained the mayor. Likewise, the toilets and showers on the premises will be constantly reviewed, with two municipal custodians and a lifeguard in charge of ensuring compliance with these measures.
The municipal swimming pool maintains the prices of other years: 2 euros for general admission (from 13 to 65 years old), and 1.50 euros for 4 to 12 years old and for retirees and disabled, with free entry for children from 0 to 4 years old. The opening hours will be from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., “with this break at noon to be able to thoroughly clean and disinfect the space,” said López. Those who want to use the pool also in the afternoon can do so, presenting the entry purchased in the morning.
The mayor has appealed to the prudence of the people of Redovan in the use of this service that “we hope will serve to cheer up and make this summer something more bearable within this new normality”, and that, in case of presenting symptoms, “do not use this service, avoiding putting neighbors at risk unnecessarily. ”
