In an effort to provide swimming for the community during this unprecedented time, High Point Parks & Recreation has established the following procedures for opening of Washington Terrace Pool this summer. We are following the Executive Order 141 which outlines North Carolina’s restrictions for Phase 2, as well as guidance by the Centers for Disease Controls and Preventions (CDC) and NC Department of Health and Human Services (NC DHHS).  In addition, we will continue to follow all of the Guilford County Health Department’s rules and regulations regarding pool operations.
