8/29/2020 - UPDATE 8/31/2020: POOL EMPLOYEE TESTS NEGATIVE, DIX HILLS POOL REOPENS

***UPDATE 8/31/2020** Good news! We received word late Sunday night that the results of the second COVID-19 test came back negative. The Dix Hills Pool has reopened today, Monday, August 31, 2020 -- Reserve a Spot: https://www.tohparks.net

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 this weekend.

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.

We will 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 and staff.
