We would first like to thank you all for “hanging in there.” It has been a very long and difficult process in arriving at a decision regarding our summer at the Antioch Aqua Center. We have waited as long as we could. All surrounding communities have made the decision to cancel aquatic operations for the 2020 season. The Antioch Aquatic Center will remain closed. All purchased pool passes for the 2020 season will rollover into the 2021 season.
The Aqua Center is inspected and issued operations permits annually by both the Lake County Health Department and the State of Illinois. The LCHD has been advised that during phase 3 of the Restore Illinois Plan Indoor/Outdoor pools are not permitted to open for normal operations. Therefore, without knowing exactly how long phase 3 will last – and if we will be permitted to operate in phase 4 – we cannot accurately predict a training or facility operations timeline.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please continue to be well Antioch.
