I hear that current OHA guidelines allow 2 swimmers per lane, what does that mean for your pool?

According to the Outdoor Recreation and Fitness FAQs    

Question 24 - Can swimmers share a lane in a pool? 

It depends on the risk level of the county where the pool is located. In extreme risk counties, limit capacity to one swimmer per lane, unless swimmers are from the same household in which case, they may share a lane. However, swimmers must ensure six (6) feet of physical distance between themselves and swimmers in other lanes. In high, moderate and lower risk counties, yes, more than one swimmer can be in a lane. Pool operators, however, are required to design and implement a plan so that individuals enter and exit the pool on opposite ends and maintain the required physical distance of at least six (6) feet between one another when swimming in the same lane, except for briefly passing in the lane. Pool operators are required to prohibit the gathering of people within the facility, including at the ends of lanes. 


If Lane County is in low, moderate or high risk levels then our lanes will be for up to two swimmers per lane on a first come, first served basis. We cannot guaranty shared lanes with household members or friends.  Swimmers will split lanes and enter on opposite side of the pool.
