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.

I believe Wesleyan (Ct) has closed until Sept. 1


I think most if not all of the college pools in the northeast are closed

Is anyone back in the pool?


If they were I doubt they would tell.
