CRACK SEAL/FOG SEAL PROGRAM
As far as recreation goes, one of the most important things our city can offer is pools over the summer. Most families don’t have pools at home, and they don’t have access to pools at gyms or private clubs either. That’s why one of my priorities has been to make our city pools available for as many people as possible. Swimming is one of the few opportunities for outdoor recreation when it’s 102 outside. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say it’s a necessity.

Policies and procedures for patient criteria, billing, and preregistration requirements vary by site, and many tests are free.
As temperatures rise in Tucson this weekend, stay safe as you enjoy a trip to the pool. Following Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance while enjoying the pool can help prevent the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. Guidelines include staying 6 feet away from people who do not live with you, staying home if you are not feeling well, limiting the sharing of pool toys and equipment, and using cloth face coverings when not in the water.
