This year we are challenged by the COVID-19 global Pandemic.
We have delayed sending this letter and invoice as long as possible, and we have come up with a plan based on Fairfax County Health Department guidelines and Northern Virginia community Pool Leaders. This plan also Governor Northam’s “Forward Virginia Blueprint”. The plan relies on members to act responsibly, adhere to social distancing guidelines and pool rules and to stay home if they exhibit symptoms or have a fever. The staff, and RFRA board reserves the right to refuse entry to any member exhibiting symptoms and to eject any member not following safety protocols.
Social distancing is a requirement for the operation and safety of the pool and our members. The lifeguards are not responsible for monitoring and policing social distancing. This is the responsibility of the members. The lifeguards are responsible for cleaning, performing pool related activities and most importantly lifeguarding. Their focus is the safety and well-being of the swimmers in the pool and on the deck.
Governor Northam’s plan is broken down into three phases. We expect that we will open the pool during Phase II of the plan, on or about 13 June 2020. This phase can last 2 to 4 weeks, and during this time we will adhere to those rules outlined by his plan.
Below are the various membership types available.
Charter memberships are available to owners of residences with certain addresses in the Rolling Forest Subdivision. See a map of qualifying residences below. Tenant memberships are renters of charter residences, when the owner chooses not to purchase the membership on behalf of the renters.
An Associate membership is available to anyone who wishes to join the pool, indiscriminate of where they live.
Voluntary memberships have been capped and are only available to existing members with Voluntary memberships. Voluntary members pay an upfront deposit and the same annual fees as Charter memberships. Depending on the number of years a Voluntary member is with the pool a percentage of the deposit is returned upon membership cancellation.
