Swimming Pool to Reopen on Tuesday, August 10th 

Location:Swimming Pool

August 09, 2021

Consistent with the Taipei Government’s recent easing of COVID-19 restrictions, we are pleased to announce the ACC Swimming Pool will reopen on Tuesday, August 10th.

Guiding principles

In deciding which facility to open and under what conditions, your Board will be following the government guidelines that have been announced to date and that may be refined further in the days ahead.  Some of these are quite vague, and when in doubt we have opted for caution. The health and safety of our Members, their families, and our staff is the most important consideration in determining how to open the Club, recognizing that we are still under the Level 2 alert.

 

COVID-19 PROTOCOLS FOR REOPENING

The Club’s existing COVID-19 protocols remain in effect and are supplemented by the following:

Access continues to be by reservation only

To preserve social distancing under the regulations; Member access to the following facilities are by reservation only:
Swimming Pool / Tennis Courts / Fitness Center / Squash / Multi-Purpose Court / Functional Training Center / Hair Salon / Library / Nursery

Facemasks must be worn at all times

Facemasks must be always worn at the Club – even on the tennis courts and in the fitness center.  There are facemask inserts that have been designed for sports and they are now for sale at our Pro Shop.

Mandatory scanning of the QR code for COVID-19 tracing

For the duration of the Level 2 alert, everyone entering the Club must scan the CDC QR code (next to the temperature check station).  This will assist the government in tracking and tracing COVID-19 cases and will provide further security for the ACC community.

Please note that in compliance with the Government’s guidelines, Members who have completed their 14 days of quarantine are still required to practice an additional 7-day self-health management. During these 7 days, Members are not allowed to enter the Club.

The Guest Ban remains in effect

The prohibition on inviting guests and Caregiver access to the Club will remain in effect for the duration of the Level 2 alert.
