CoronaSummer: Mapping the United States’ Pool Closures for 2020

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, public pools across the country have closed in order to comply with Stay-at-Home initiatives and to help protect the public from the spread of the virus.

Due to the uncertain nature of the current times, it is unclear when most of the nation’s public pools will be open for summer, if at all. This means the loss of fun, play, life-saving swim lessons, competition, and exercise outlets for people around the country.

While some parts of the economy will likely restart before summer’s end, the uncertainty brings challenges in terms of training and staffing lifeguards and management, buying supplies, and paying for pool operation.

The following map shows some of the public pool closures in the country, with pools considered to be “closed until further notice” pinned in blue and pools considered to be “closed for the summer” pinned in red. You can click the checkboxes to turn whole layers off-and-on.

We will continue to update the map as more closures are announced. If you have a pool that has announced a closure (or conversely that has announced that it does plan to open) that you think we’ve missed, please post it in the comments below.

Please help me understand where you received your information? Specifically, the four pools located in Mobile, AL? No determination has been made by the City of Mobile regarding those pools for the summer season. They are typically only open from June 1 through Aug 1 and are considered seasonal pools.

Hi Greg,

If you read the text that goes with the map, you’ll see that pools marked in blue are “closed until further notice.” Pools in red are “closed for the summer.”

As you can see, the vast majority of cities have not “closed for the summer” yet, just “closed until further notice.”

The City of Mobile announced that it was closing all of its recreational facilities for now, though not necessarily for the whole summer.

We will update these as more information becomes available, so if you guys do make a decision for “the summer,” please let us know!

This particular page is both highly information & reflective of the sad state of affairs at this time. Thank you very much for publishing it. Would rather be informed than not. That said, looking for it to be warm enough to hit the lakes soon.

It’s time to open the pools and get back to training.

Either a brave reader or a new reader. I feel like people are about to shame you beyond belief. Stay strong and know there there are many who agree with you!
