(Newcomerstown, Ohio) – Officials are moving forward with a plan to open the pool at Cy Young Park this weekend.

Reports indicate, the opening set for Saturday, June 8th would make the Newcomerstown pool the only one open to the public in Tuscarawas County. Guidelines include the pool being open for two sessions each day from noon to 2:00 p.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. with the time between each session being used to sanitize the facility.

Additional restrictions include only 75 people being permitted to use the pool at one time in order to maintain social distancing related to COVID-19 precautions. Use would also be limited to residents of the Newcomerstown Exempted Village School District only.
