2020 Siouxnami Waterpark Operations Policies and Procedures

With safety and health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, City of Sioux Center Officials and the All Seasons Center Management team, in consultation with Iowa Department of Public Health, and the CDC considerations, have developed these policies and procedures to help us provide a safe and fun swim environment in and around the water.

All Seasons Center Policy Summary

Staff Policies:

Employees will be required to have a no-touch temperature taken when they arrive at work. If temperature is above 100 degrees the staff member will be sent home until they are fever free for 24 hours.

Employees who appear to have symptoms (i.e., fever, cough, or shortness of breath) upon arrival at work or who become sick during the day should immediately be separated from other employees, customers, and visitors and sent home.

Lifeguards will not be required to wear a mask, but masks will be available and can be worn if they would like.

Lifeguards will keep their rescue tube with them for the day, and they will be disinfected each evening.

Each staff member will have their own hip pack with PPE, including hand sanitizer, gloves and a breathing barrier.

Concession Stand Attendants will be required to wear a mask. They will be required to wear gloves while handling any food.

The Front Desk attendant will have a sneeze barrier in place.

If an employee is confirmed to have COVID-19 infection, the All Seasons Center will inform fellow employees of their possible exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace but maintain confidentiality as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The All Seasons Center will instruct fellow employees about how to proceed based on the CDC Public Health Recommendations for Community-Related Exposure.
