Worcester County Gave Guidance
The answer to if a pool is open in Ocean City or beyond in Worcester County is
Recreational pools are not open. Semi-public pools are open. Companies offering semi-public pools must adhere to the below guidelines, one of which is no more than 10 people in a pool.
We asked for further guidance to determine what is recreational and what is semi-public. The County said most condominiums and hotels are classified as semi-public, but they do have some that are classified as recreational. Any facility that charges a fee or has water play equipment will fall under the recreational classification.
Here is the code regulations to determine classification:

Works Progress Administration Renovation
In 1934, mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia nominated Robert Moses to become commissioner of a unified New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. At the time, the United States was experiencing the Great Depression immediately after La Guardia won the 1933 election, Moses began to write “a plan for putting 80,000 men to work on 1,700 relief projects”. By the time he was in office, several hundred such projects were underway across the city.
Construction for some of the 11 pools began in October 1934. The pond, golf course, rustic shelter, and carousel were removed to make way for the new pool at Sunset Park, which would be on the park’s eastern side. The blueprints for the Sunset Park pool were submitted to the New York City Department of Buildings in August 1935, by which point WPA workers were already working at the site. During construction, several Native American artifacts were found at the site of the old pond. By mid-1936, ten of the eleven WPA-funded pools were completed and were being opened at a pace of one per week. The Sunset Pool was the sixth of these pools to open. The pool was dedicated on July 20, 1936, with a crowd of 3,500 spectators. The center, the first of four planned WPA pools in Brooklyn, was composed of a one-story bathhouse with a capacity of 4,850 a 256-by-165-foot pool and two semicircular 165-foot-diameter pools for wading and diving.
Guidelines To Open Pools
Prepare the Facility/Grounds
- Number of patrons will follow the capacity limit set by the Governors Executive order, currently this is 10 or fewer people so as not to constitute a large gathering.
- Facility will track pool capacity using a sign in/out sheet or another appropriate method.
- Implement physical distancing requirements between patrons or household groups at the facility, change deck layout to ensure that in the standing or seating areas, individuals or household groups can remain at least 6 feet apart. No gatherings or events.
- Implement physical distancing where patrons form a line waiting for the pool to open or for someone to leave so they can enter.
- For indoor pools, meet current standards for ventilation and dehumidification, Increase introduction and circulation of outdoor air as much as possible by opening windows and doors, using fans or other methods. Do not open windows or doors if doing so poses a safety risk to staff or patrons.
- Maintain supply of soap for hand washing and showers, and hand sanitizer.
- Ensure that all water systems are safe to use after prolonged facility shutdown to minimize the risk of Legionnaires disease and other diseases associated with water.
- Ensure there is adequate equipment for patrons and swimmers to minimize sharing to the extent possible, or limiting the use of equipment by one group of users at a time and cleaning and disinfecting between use.
