RACINE FAMILY YMCA – UPDATE ON SC JOHNSON COMMUNITY AQUATIC CENTER AT PRITCHARD PARK FOR SUMMER 2020

May 27, 2020: Amid the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, officials continue to assess the feasibility of opening the SC Johnson Community Aquatic Center, mindful of both safety and staffing considerations.

Racine County and the Racine Family YMCA have been working on a plan in consultation with public health officials that would incorporate social distancing and all relevant local, state and national health guidelines and orders to avoid the spread of COVID-19. With those discussions underway, a determination has not yet been made as to whether, when, and under what circumstances the facility may open.

Updates will be provided as more information becomes available. Racine County and the Racine Family YMCA continue to remind the public to practice social distancing, good hygiene, and proper swimming and water safety skills.
