Under the Governor's orders, the Mecklenburg County Aquatic Center is reducing its user capacity to safely operate the facility. Swim lanes may accommodate one (1) person per lane. The spa will have a maximum capacity of two people at any time. The warm pool will operate a dedicated lane for programming with the remainder of the pool accommodating 18 participants.
To provide equity to all lap swimmers, swimming will be limited to one-hour time blocks at the beginning of every hour. Several lanes will be available to reserve online up to seven (7) days in advance with the remaining lanes operating on a first-come, first-served basis. The facility will provide each swimmer a wristband upon entry defining the hour and lane provided.
