Details of Lt. Colonel Edward J. Higgins Swimming Pool

Overview of Lt. Colonel Edward J. Higgins Swimming Pool

Effective immediately, and until further notice, the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) will implement a closure of the Lt. Colonel Edward J. Higgins Swimming Pool in the City of Lawrence due to an individual at the facility coming into close contact with someone who recently tested positive for COVID-19. Currently, DCR is in the process of having the facility deep cleaned and sanitized.

In accordance with the Baker-Polito Administration’s reopening plan, the Department of Conservation and Recreation has reduced capacity at agency-managed pools for the 2020 summer season to aid in the prevention of spreading the COVID-19 virus

Once a deep-water pool reaches capacity, the pool will remain closed to new patrons for approximately two hours or until the next regularly scheduled pool check and water quality tests are conducted. These are normally scheduled daily at 1:15PM, 3:15PM, and 5:15PM.

At that time, all patrons will be required to vacate the facility. Once the pool check, water quality test, and any associated cleaning or maintenance has been completed (approximately 15 minutes), the pool will reopen to patrons waiting in line.

Once a wading pool reaches capacity, entrance into the facility will be on a one-in, one-out basis, until the pool is no longer at capacity. When conducting daily water quality tests and pool checks, patrons will be allowed to stay on deck but should remain several feet back from the edge of the pool.
