“I joined the Fanwood-Scotch Plains Y 20 years ago to learn how to swim properly. Before COVID-19, I would swim four to five times a week and use the Wellness Center on the other days.
When FSPY was closed, I decided to keep up my membership in order to help, in some small way, keep someone employed. I missed swimming and was excited when I heard the pool would be open on a limited basis by reservation only. I registered right away for the week, and when I arrived for the first time, I was impressed by the safety features in place, i.e., temperature checks, questions, sanitizers, social distancing and disinfectants frequently being utilized. My first swim since COVID-19 made me so happy, words cannot say enough about it. The lifeguards on duty were strict with the rules and kept everyone safe. I would like to thank the FSPY employees and teams that made every effort to provide us with a safe and healthy environment.”
