With temperatures expected to climb over the 90 degree mark throughout this week and possibly into next, the Scott City swimming pool will provide welcome relief, even if attendance is limited due to pandemic guidelines.

Through the first couple of weeks, a maximum of 23 swimmers will be allowed in the pool during four different sessions. Tentative plans are to increase that to nearly 40 swimmers per session by mid- to late June.

Added precautions will by taken by the pool managers and lifeguards beyond social distancing recommendations.

•Everything will be disinfected and wiped down between each session and at the end of the day.

•Lounge chairs will not be provided by the pool, but people can bring their own.
