“Listening to the medical experts has always been and will continue to drive our decision-making methods regarding the city facilities we reopen,” said St. George Mayor Jon Pike. “After consultation with Dr. Blodgett of Southwest Utah Public Health Department and the guidance of our state-level officials, we decided it was appropriate to open these facilities with additional safety measures taken.”

Precautionary safety measures include altered hours of operation and adjusted capacity limits. Pool restrictions can be found here. Recreation Center guidelines can be found here.

“Safety is our top priority moving forward,” said Leisure Services Director Shane McAffee. “That said, we ask for your cooperation and patience as we reopen facilities such as the City Pool in which our capacity will be limited.”
