The city of Decatur’s three outdoor pools opened on Saturday with reduced capacity.

McKoy, Ebster and Glenlake pools will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Glenlake will stay open daily through Labor Day, while McKoy and Ebster will only be open on weekends starting August 1.

Residents do not need to make reservations ahead of time to visit the pools, but visitors are asked to leave after two hours to allow people in line to enter.

Due to social distancing rules, the total occupancy at each pool is being limited: 53 people at Glenlake, 31 at Ebster and 25 people at McKoy. The Oakhurst Indoor Pool remains closed.

Bathrooms will also be limited to two people at a time.

Admission is $5 for each person older than 2.  Resident pool passes are available for purchase online.

Residents can visit the city's website for a full list of pool policies.
