JACKSON, Wyo. — With Teton County at a high-risk level for COVID-19 transmission, Parks & Rec will offer reduced services at their Aquatic Center and implement its fall hours beginning next week.

On Monday, Aug. 30, 2021, the Aquatic Center hours at the Recreation Center for open lap swim will be Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 12 p.m., and weekend hours from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Reservation Lap Swim will be available Monday through Friday, 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in one-hour blocks. Family Swim is reserved for Saturday and Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Family Swim will no longer take place on weekdays due to youth swim team practice scheduled in the afternoon.

Due to Teton County’s high-risk (Red) level, capacity in the Aquatic Center is reduced, allowing only enough space for youth swim team practice.

“Once the risk level for COVID-19 in Teton County lessens, [the staff] hopes to bring back Family Swim on weekdays,” said Parks & Rec in a press release this morning.

She's a lover of alliteration, easy-to-follow recipes and board games when everyone knows the rules. Her favorite aspect about living in the Tetons is the collective admiration that Wyomingites share for the land and the life that it sustains.
