The City of Santa Maria reopened its main public pool after some lifeguard staffÂ tested positive for COVID-19Â last month.
In December 2020, the city reported that 20% of their lifeguard staff had tested positive for the virus or had been exposed to others who had tested positive.
The facility was promptly closed the evening of Dec. 30 and expected to remain closed through at least Jan. 14, the normal amount of time to properly quarantine.
This week, the Aquatic Center announced that their staff have tested negative for COVID and are cleared to return to work.See KEYT
