Is the Family Pool Open?
No, water parks can not be open under the current MDHHS order MCL 333.2221 , so that means no play features or slide can be used. A traditional open swim can not take place as it falls under unstructured group play.
Q: What is the distinction between a water park and a swimming pool under this Order?
A: A water park – which is not permitted to operate under this Order – is a recreational facility with water features including pools, slides, sprinklers, and the like, which primarily serves an entertainment or recreational purpose, and which is open for unstructured play. Swimming pools that are permitted to operate under this Order are those which are used for individual exercise or organized sports, such as those set up with individual lanes for lap swimming and which do not contain large open areas of water for unstructured group play.
