Duque said in accordance with the state guidelines, the pool area is regularly cleaned for the health and safety of the pool patrons and employees.

“Out of an abundance of caution, the Nederland Swimming Pool will be closed for two weeks and will re-open on Saturday, July 4,” Duque said. “When the pool re-opens, the City will continue to prioritize the health and safety of patrons and pool employees via social distancing at the pool and regular cleaning.”
