PULASKI COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) – After a year of public pools largely being shut down due to the pandemic, many pools are reopening for the year as restrictions continue to be eased. However, that’s not the case everywhere.
In Pulaski County, a lifeguard shortage is plaguing the area – so much so, that pools are reopening but with limited capacity.
According to the Pulaski County Parks and Recreation, pools will limit guest capacity and hours.
Randolph Park Pool will only be open to residents of Pulaski County and guests will have to show proof of residence.
The pool will be open as of June 28 between noon and 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
