Extended Hours this Weekend.

Welcome back to sunshine and good air! Since this weekend is likely to show us some warm weather, the pool will be opening at noon and closing at 8 on Saturday and Sunday. If there are no reservations by 5 pm for the last hour, the guards may close at the normal time.  

I want to thank you all for making our unusual season work so well! In signing up for one swim period at a time, and listing all swimmers, and especially in observing social distancing and mask wearing on the pool grounds, you have enabled us to swim in a safe and enjoyable environment in an uncertain time. Enjoy the weekend!

Agua Linda Pool Re-opened

Since the air quality has improved over night, we will open the pool today, Tuesday 9/15, for regular hours from 1pm to 7pm. We will keep monitoring the air quality, and if it takes a turn for the worse, we’ll need to shut down. But right now things are looking good!

Agua Linda Pool closed

Because of the poor air quality and the uncertainty of improvement, the pool will remain closed until further notice. We will evaluate the situation each day, and cancel reservations for each day we are sure we won’t open. Thank you for your continued patience and fortitude, and stay safe.

Air Quality on Labor Day Weekend

We seem to have our fill of adversity this year. Numerous fires in the region have meant that smoke has not been clearing up, but has gotten somewhat worse over the past 12 – 24 hours. The Board will be monitoring air quality and make a decision tomorrow morning shortly after 10 whether to open. If the AQI is over 120 and trending upward, we will not open tomorrow, as frustrating as that will be. We thank you again for your patience and understanding. Please stand by.

Opening on Wednesday

Agua Linda Pool is now open for swimming by members only. Following Alameda County pool guidelines, swimming is by reservation only. Members should access the Members Only page, where they will find instructions and links to the reservation system.

Survey Request

Your pool board would like to know your views about opening the pool. These will help us make decisions about open hours, staffing, and preparing the facility for the new COVID reality.

We have set up a short survey that we urge each membership housefly to complete as soon as possible — by 6pm Wednesday evening, August 26, at the latest. Your appreciation is greatly appreciated! Continued in members only section.

2020 Agua Linda Opening Update

The opening of swimming pools in Alameda County continues to be delayed by the extent of coronavirus spread. We are waiting for our case numbers to be falling for 14 consecutive days before the county moves toward its next phase of reopenings, which would include pools. At this point in the pandemic, it’s my opinion that we need to be prepared for pools not opening at all this summer.

It remains the Board’s goal both to maintain our ability to open next year and to be financially fair to all members. We are a not-for-profit organization, so that when we know how much we require to maintain the pool and insure its future next year, we will return any money that is not needed. By the end of 2020, and possibly sooner, we will have more specifics about how much can be rebated… (continued in the members only page)

2020 Agua Linda Opening Update

Dear Agua Linda Members: Our opening is currently paused as a result of the Alameda County health order dated June 29. Pools are in the next reopening level, but when we will reach that level is unknown. (See current reopening plan). This is frustrating for all of us, but currently we are at the mercy of the coronavirus. I know some of you have asked about whether there can be any additional dues rebates if we are unable to open at all. At present we are not planning on any additional rebates. However, the Board will meet periodically to assess our situation and make a determination about finances when conditions become clearer. In the meantime, everyone be safe, keep a distance, wear masks in public, and hope for happier times to come.
