Hugh: Provincially Operated Pools in Gander and Corner Brook to Re-Open Next Week
Minister of Children, Seniors, and Social Development, Lisa Dempster, announced on Friday that provincially-operated pools in Gander and Corner Brook will re-open as of Monday, August 10th. From the press release:
As per public health guidelines, operational changes have been made to enhance safety and cleaning procedures of these pool sites. There will be a restricted number of patrons allowed within the pools at any one time, and a requirement for pre-booking of swim times. Patrons can pre-book swims by calling:
- Corner Brook: 1-709-637-2584
- Gander: 1-709-256-1283
For more information on using the provincial pools, please visit www.gov.nl.ca/cssd/recreation/provincially-operated-pools/. Plans to reopen the provincially owned and operated pool in Happy Valley-Goose Bay have been delayed due to ceiling damage sustained at the end of July. The Department of Transportation and Works is currently assessing the extent of damage and an update will be provided at a later date.
