Please help us, senior citizens, not to get sick. Please open door at Wilson high school from inside of the school yard for people leaving swimming pool to be able to get to the parking at the front of the building without walking wet when it is cold. weather
For the Wilson and other aquatic centers, are we able to use the locker rooms for changing clothes? The sign up registration form states the locker rooms will be used for exit and entrance to the pool.It says, wear your swimming suit to the facility. Is this true? that you wear your swimming suit there, swim, then wear your suit , wet, with wet hair , going home?????
is anyone else having issues with registration in the portal? nothing is selectable anymore
Where does one go to find information regarding status of DC Pools? Our Neighbors in MD and Virginia clearly understood the importance of their pools and public health this summer. And they got it done beautifully. We deserve to have regular updates.
