COVID-19 Recreation Program Response

Recreation and Swim Complex is Closed

As cases sharply increase across the country and California, Governor Gavin Newsom announced immediate actions to slow the spread of the virus. Effective Tuesday, November 17, 2020, Purple Tier restrictions are in place including the closure of indoor pools. 

Should conditions improve and we move back to Orange Tier status we will plan to re-open at that time. Any changes will be posted on this website and included in our automated voice message at 530-542-6056. 

For additional information about this decision, you can reference California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, a Roadmap for Reducing COVID-19 with criteria for loosening and tightening restrictions on activities at

Thank you for your understanding during these trying times and please stay safe ~
