Our much anticipated summer Wednesday Night Socials are back for the summer.  Rather than preparing meals at the pool, we will have one food truck each week.  They will be parked on Orangebrick Way and open for service from 5:30pm – 7:30 pm. The food truck ordering links will be posted by Monday each week here at http://www.shadowbrook.org. Please try to place your orders by Tuesday so the food trucks have an idea how many meals to prepare..

Our remaining Summer lineup is as follows:

July 21  Grillzillas, the Dudes Sandwich Makers – Burgers & Sandwiches

With the end of the Colored Tier system on June 15, and based on the most recent CDC guidance, the Board is shifting to our Phase Two program starting Monday, June 21.  Please continue to check the website throughout the summer for any further updates to our operations.

All capacity restrictions have been removed, and all Members and Associates will have access to the pool during the times listed above and below; please review these times as they have been tweaked based on requests from our many lap swimmers. Lifeguards will not be on duty during lap swims, and swimmers must be at least 18 years old to participate in lap swim. There will no longer be a SignUpGenius process – come when & as often as you will, and stay as long as you like. 

Five Day Lunchtime Lap Swim – Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday

** all six lane lines will be up from 12 noon to 12:45 pm; first-come, first-serve; swimmers are requested to share lanes if necessary

Three Day Evening Lap Swim – Monday Tuesday Thursday

Please continue to sign-in at the Office upon entry and complete a family Waiver if one is not already on file. Each hour will include 45 minutes of free swim and 15 minutes of adult swim. Lifeguards will be on duty except during lap swim times. Lifeguards will be wearing masks in the office, bathrooms and kitchen.

Upon first entry, every family will be required to sign a Shadow Brook COVID-19 Waiver of Liability. We encourage everyone to review and complete the waiver prior to coming to the pool to help speed up the entry process. If you signed a waiver during Phase 1, you are all set.  

Masks must be worn by the unvaccinated during entry and exit and when accessing the bathrooms or the kitchen. Our Lifeguards are there to protect the community and we expect our members to respect and adhere to the rules that we have outlined.  Anyone found in violation of the rules and/or procedures can either be banned from using the pool or have their Associate Membership revoked.

Parties will not be possible during Phase Two, but all Members and Associates are free to bring up to five (5) Guests at the regular $2 fee per Guests. The Board has revised the Member definition of a household / family; Grandparents, Parents, Adult Children and Grandchildren will not be charged a $2 guest fee, and are not included in your 5 guests – please revise your Waiver to reflect anyone you bring to the pool that fits in these categories. The definition of an Associate household is unchanged, and limited to everyone who is a permanent resident to the home as in detailed in the Associate Agreement. Caregivers/Nannies will also be allowed without the guest fee and must be added to the waiver.  

 The kitchen, BBQ and showers are now open. Disinfectant wipes will be available and everyone is encouraged to wipe down tables and chairs before and after use. We hope to start swim lessons on either July 12 or July 19. If interested, please call the office or ask a Lifeguard to put your name on the Lesson waiting list.

The Board is attempting to balance many factors with this approach, and sincerely regret if it may not work for every family. We recognize that you might not know who is vaccinated and who has not been vaccinated outside of your family.  Most importantly, no one should come to the pool, vaccinated or not, unless they’re comfortable being on the pool property. No one should go in, or stay in, the pool unless they’re comfortable being in the pool with others.

For the safety of everyone, including children and our Lifeguard staff, we are encouraging all patrons, if eligible, to be vaccinated. We are also encouraging anyone who has not fully completed the vaccination protocol to protect themselves and others by wearing a mask at all times when not in the pool, and maintain the standard 6 feet social distancing.  If you have had a recent COVID test due to an exposure or have traveled outside of the area within the last ten days, please do not come to the pool without first receiving a Negative COVID test.  If you or an immediate family member are experiencing COVID-like symptoms please do not come to the pool.  While we expect everyone to exercise personal responsibility, it is important for all of us to understand that we also have the responsibility of keeping others in our community safe.  We are thrilled to be able to open the pool this year with these modifications.  Thank you in advance for being considerate of the well-being of the entire Shadow Brook Community.

Pool Sign-up and Rules for Phase One Summer Season

During the Board meeting on May 11th, with input from HOA members on the call, the Board crafted an operational plan for Phase One (through June 14) based on available information. On May 13th, the CDC and Biden Administration declared in essence that everyone who has been vaccinated can return to pre-Covid activities without restrictions, and encouraged everyone to get vaccinated. We have not yet heard from CA-DPH or Governor Newson, other than that they expect the Colored Tier system to end as of June 15. Based on the updated CDC guidance, the Board’s is attempting to craft as close-to-normal a summer swim season as possible. Below we have outlined the plan for Phase 1 – Memorial Weekend through June 15th.  Please check the website on May 27 and throughout the summer for any updates to our operations..

The current operational plan is to open the pool from 12 noon to 8 pm in two-hour segments (12-2; 2-4; 4-6; 6-8). You cannot enter the pool prior to your 2-hour time slot and you must leave at the end of the time slot.  Maximum capacity on property will be 75 people registering via Sign-Up-Genius. Lifeguards will be on duty. The pool will be open to all with no lane lines. Each hour will include 45 minutes of free swim and 15 minutes of adult swim each hour. We are asking Members and Associates to comply with Lifeguard requests to maintain maximum POOL occupancy of 35 people which is 50% of the pool capacity. Our Lifeguards will be wearing masks at all times except when in the Chair.

Masks must be worn by everyone during entry and exit and for access to the bathrooms and masks must be worn by anyone not yet vaccinated including children under 12. There are No Exceptions. Our Lifeguards are there to protect the community and we expect our members to respect and adhere to the rules that we have outlined.  Anyone found in violation of the rules and/or procedures can either be banned from using the pool or have their Associate Membership revoked.

Only Member and Associate households can register via Sign-Up-Genius. During registration you will designate the number in your party, and segment signups will close at 75. At entry you will mark your name off the tally sheet at the office. By signing up using the Sign-Up-Genius platform you will also attest to a number of COVID safety precautions.  Future access to the pool may be restricted for No Shows who do not cancel via Sign-Up-Genius at least 2 hours prior to their segment. No guests, other family members nor anyone not in your immediate household will be allowed entry. Upon first entry, every family will be required to sign a Shadow Brook COVID-19 Waiver of Liability. We encourage everyone to review and complete the waiver prior to coming to the pool to help speed up the entry process.

Tables and chairs will be available as per normal operations and the grass will be open to all. Disinfectant wipes will be available and everyone is encouraged to wipe down tables and chairs before and after use. You are free to bring your own food and beverages. The kitchen, BBQ and showers will be closed. We are not scheduling any parties or swim lessons at this time.

The Board is attempting to balance many factors with this approach, and sincerely regret if it may not work for every family. We recognize that you might not know who is vaccinated and who has not been vaccinated outside of your family.  Most importantly, no one should come to the pool, vaccinated or not, unless they’re comfortable being on the pool property. No one should go in, or stay in, the pool unless they’re comfortable being in the pool with others.

For the safety of everyone, including children and our Lifeguard staff, we are encouraging all patrons, if eligible, to be vaccinated. We are also encouraging anyone who has not fully completed the vaccination protocol to protect themselves and others by wearing a mask at all times when not in the pool, and maintain the standard 6 feet social distancing.  If you have had a recent COVID test due to an exposure or have travelled outside of the area within the last ten days, please do not come to the pool without first receiving a Negative COVID test.  If you or an immediate family member are experiencing COVID-like symptoms please do not come to the pool.  While we expect everyone to exercise personal responsibility, it is important for all of us to understand that we also have the responsibility of keeping others in our community safe.  We are thrilled to be able to open the pool this year with these modifications.  Thank you in advance for being considerate of the well-being of the entire Shadow Brook Community.
