Original Report: 01/25/22

The Palm Springs Swim Center has temporarily shut down again due to short staffing related to COVID-19 that has left the facility unable to efficiently operate, the city announced on Tuesday.

The City will notify the community when the Swim Center is once again able to re-open to the public.

“We understand how much our residents use and appreciate the Swim Center and we did not make the decision to close lightly,” said Jeannie Kays, Interim Director of Parks and Recreation. “This closure is necessary to ensure the health and safety of not only our employees, but also the public who use the facility daily. We thank our residents for their patience during this trying time.”

This is the second time in two weeks the center has been shut down. The last time this happened was on Jan. 10. The reason for that closure was an increase in COVID-19 exposures amongst staff that left the facility unable to efficiently operate.

The center was reopened on Jan. 19, but was shut down again on Tuesday.
