Under the Governor's orders, the Mecklenburg County Aquatic Center continues to reduce its user capacity to safely operate the facility. Member and public swim lanes may accommodate one (1) person per lane. Swim teams may accommodate two (2) people 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.
