DIX HILLS POOL TO REMAIN CLOSED SUNDAY PENDING "FAINT POSITIVE" COVID-19 TEST RESULT OF POOL EMPLOYEE:
Today we learned that one of our pool lifeguards, who last worked Wednesday, August 26 (and passed the daily employee temperature
screenings, contact tracing screenings and wore a mask while working),
tested "faint positive" for COVID-19.
This employee had five (5) vaccines at their doctor's office on Long Island
Friday morning, and went to school out-of-state Friday afternoon where
they tested for COVID-19 and received a "faint positive" result. Our
pool employee was retested out-of-state today and is expecting results
We are currently investigating and awaiting the
results of the second test. In the meantime, out an abundance of
caution, we will keep the Dix Hills Pool closed on Sunday. None of our
staff members are showing signs of COVID-19 but we still are asking all
to self-isolate until we receive the second test result.
use this time to do additional sanitizing and cleaning of all areas at
Dix Hills Pool to maintain a safe and healthy environment for residents
