The City of Deer Park prioritizes the health and safety of employees, patrons and residents above all else. We have continually practiced strong social distancing and hygiene procedures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in City facilities.
Recently, an individual directly associated with a Parks and Recreation Department program at the Dow Park Pool tested positive for COVID-19. Due to Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Protected Health Information laws, the City is not able to provide identifying information.
City officials have reviewed potential contact the individual had with staff and members of the public, and out of an abundance of caution, have elected to close the Dow Park Pool and to cancel all classes at the facility through Tuesday, July 28, effective immediately.
Classes to be cancelled include Swim Lessons (Session 3), Private Swim Lessons (Session 6) and Aqua Zumba (Session 2) from Wednesday, July 22 through Sunday, July 26. Additionally, practice for the Seals and Blast swim teams will be cancelled during this time. The pool will be closed for regular maintenance on Monday, July 27.
Additional information regarding the ongoing operation of the Dow Park Pool will be provided via City outlets including the City website – www.deerparktx.gov – and the Parks and Recreation Department Facebook page, facebook.com/deerparktx.parksandrecreation.
We apologize for any inconvenience - this decision was made with the health and safety of our employees, patrons and residents in mind.
