Gov. Ducey issued an Executive Order on June 29 that provided new guidelines for city-operated pools, gyms and events. As a result, the following changes are in effect at Escalante Community Center:
  • Open swim and lap swim will continue with strict physical distancing, face covering and cleaning protocols in place. Groups of 10 or more will not be allowed to congregate in or out of pools. 
  • The fitness center and gymnasium are closed until further notice.
  • All exercise classes are canceled.
  • Summer camps will continue since classes have less than 50 kids and physical distancing is in place.
