Perrywood 2021 Pool Opening Update
The pool was scheduled to open Friday, July 2, 2021, unfortunately this will not take place due to the nationwide lifeguard shortage. With the Embassy limiting international work visas, domestic students opting to collect unemployment due to higher pay and candidates not being able to pass the lifeguard examination has resulted in this nationwide shortage.
Perrywood’s pool contractor previously contacted Prince George’s County Government and a host of other County agencies to try and recruit possible candidates. Unfortunately many of the candidates who applied could not pass the lifeguard certification course which includes a written examination, swim and rescue tests.
The pool company will continue their search for lifeguards but cannot confirm a specific date as to when the pool will be open to the community.
The Board and management will continue to keep the community updated when new information is received.
