What to expect at the pool

To ensure compliance with Montgomery County Phase 2 guidelines and capacity restrictions, MVF is activating the following processes to maximize residents’ pool experience:

  • Lap lanes are limited to one resident at a time per Montgomery County guidelines.
  • When entering the facility residents must be free from COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Staff will require residents to complete a sign-in upon entry and sign-out when leaving. Residents will also be required to show their Activity Card or temporary access letter to use the pool (see Activity Card process). Activity Cards will not be collected by the Desk Attendant.
  • No furniture will be provided. Residents are encouraged to bring their own chair/towel to sit on.
  • Wading pools will not be open per Montgomery County guidelines.
  • Residents are permitted to consume food/beverages within the pool enclosure, providing they are 8-feet from the pool edge.
  • Residents should stay at least 6-feet apart (both in and out of the water) from other individuals not from their household.
  • Per the Governor's Executive Order, residents must wear face coverings when interacting with staff or other individuals not from their household. Residents will be required to wear face coverings at all times when in the bathhouses. Residents should not wear face coverings in the water.
  • Water fountains will be closed per Montgomery County guidelines.
  • Items placed in Lost and Found will be disposed of at the end of the day, with the exception of items which can be wiped clean.
  • Residents should download the RainoutLine app and search “Montgomery Village” to get up to date closure information. Residents can also review our closure information by visiting www.montgomeryvillage.com/recreation/closure-information, or calling the pool directly.
  • Non-residents and guests are not permitted to enter the pools during this phase; there will be no issuance of guest cards or outside pool memberships.

These procedures are subject to change based on actual usage and observations of pool patrons.


The Montgomery Village Foundation owns and operates six pools during the summer months. Access to pools is with a valid photo activity card, which can be obtained at the MVF Office, 10120 Apple Ridge Road.
