On May 19, 2021, the NJ Dept. of Health regulations that any pool operator opening the pool must have an “ambassador” present when the pool is open. The “ambassador” is required to maintain a record of the persons in the pool at any given time, check and record the temperature of all persons in the pool and pool area, ensure social distancing is maintained, sanitize the area and lounges/chairs frequently while the pool is open. I believe there is also a “capacity” requirement in the pool and in the pool area.
NOTE that on 5-28-2021, the above regulations were rescinded. No pool ambassador is required. Let my people swim.
The Board contact the state health department to see if this would apply to our Condo association. We were told yes but also to check with the city.
On 6-2-2021 I spoke to Teresa Giodano, REHS - City of Long Branch Department of Health regarding my conversation with the state. She stated she would forward me information.
On 6-4-2021 Teresa Giordano responded by email the following “Good afternoon, as per our conversation, here is a copy of the updated COVID 19 pool guidelines. Please feel free to reach out with any questions. Teresa Giordano, REHS
City of Long Branch Department of Health 344 Broadway Long Branch, NJ 07740.
On 6-7-2021 Larry reached out to several contacts he had from his corporate past. He was given the name of a company: Signature Safety http://www.signaturesafety.net/services.html Larry contacted the office located in Brick and soon after received a proposal from them with a scope of work to do a site visit and develop safety recommendations if they could be met.
On 6-9-2021 Signature was onsite and felt we could open the pool if we addressed the punch list that will be in our hands sometime on Monday. He gave a verbal bullet points of things to be done on the spot.
Mario is being contacted to clean the pool area and tackle the punch list. We will need a dumpster to take all the materials away.
We will ask the pool division of Long Branch to come out and give there blessings as soon as the pool area is cleaned out.
The pool will then be opened.
Sorry, for the Boards poor response time in tackling this matter given the news on 5-29-2021.
A professiomal safety inspection was performed today around the pool area. A punch list was generated that will result in the opening of the pool. We will update you on the official opening date day!
