Chino Valley Aquatic Center closes for season
In accordance with the executive order released Monday, June 29, by Gov. Doug Ducey, the Town of Chino Valley has announced that the town Aquatic Center, located at 1615 N. Road 1 East, will suspend operations effective immediately for the remainder of the swim season.
Amid coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns, the pool opened on June 12 with added maintenance and social distancing guidelines in effect. However, the reopening was short-lived due to Ducey’s order, which closed down bars, gyms, movie theaters and water parks for 30 days. The swim season at the Chino Valley Aquatic Center was scheduled to run through Aug. 9.
“This wasn’t an easy decision to make,” Mayor Darryl Croft said. “Our main concern is and continues to be the health and safety of our citizens, our staff, and the visitors who come and enjoy our pool from around the area. With the recent spike in cases throughout the state, Governor Ducey’s order today, and the continued recommendations from the CDC, this decision is in the best interest of our town.”
