Covid 19 Pool Access

Prior to proceeding to the booking calendar, please review the following COVID-19 rules:

Please keep in mind that you are booking a 45 min pool use period which includes restroom use, showers, etc. At the end of your 45-minute period, you will be asked to vacate the pool area immediately which means no extra time for locker room/shower use. If you would like to use the locker rooms, please allow time out of your allotted 45-minute period.

6:00 am – 11:00 am – Adults only for lap swim and water exercise only.

11:00 am – 6:00 pm – Family Swim Time. Maximum of 5 family members and you will be limited to a specific section of the pool only.

To cancel a swim session, please email or call the pool directly at (949) 376-8232.

COVID-19 Pool Rules

Pool Rules

  1. Residents must agree to NOT swim if they have any symptoms or exposure risks as listed by the CDC Guidelines.
  2. Individuals visiting the pool complex must comply with social distancing as mandated by the State of California and Orange County Department of Public Health.
  3. All swimmers must be Emerald Bay residents and must agree to NOT congregate around the pool complex. Guests are permitted providing they are accompanied by their resident host.
  4. The Pool Complex is open for swim seven (7) days a week, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. by appointment only; 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. is reserved for lap swim only.
  5. Appointments can be made online any time at or by calling 949-376-8232 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m., Monday through Friday. Cancellations can be made by emailing or by calling 949-376-8232. Calls and voicemails received outside of these hours will not be accepted and are not a valid form of registration.
  6. Appointments are on a limited use basis to support social distancing measures.
  7. Appointments are restricted to 45-minute time slots to allow a 15-minute window for cleaning before the next session begins. If you arrive later than your scheduled start-time, you are still required to vacate the pool by your scheduled end-time.
  8. Appointments are restricted to one appointment per Resident per day, as availability allows.
  9. Once an appointment has been booked, an email will be sent with confirmation. Only those with confirmations will be admitted into the complex. Those without appointments may be admitted to the complex on a first come, first served basis, if there is available capacity as determined by the lifeguard on duty.
  10. Individuals with confirmed appointments must be present five minutes before and practice social distancing while queuing to be allowed into the complex.
  11. Booking privileges will be revoked from any individual who fails to show up to their appointment without prior notification or fails to comply with the pool complex rules. Nuisance citations, which carry a fine of up to $5,000 if levied, may also apply.
  12. These pool rules will remain in effect until January 1, 2021 at which time the Association will revert back to, and enforce, the relevant pre-COVID pool rules.


  1. These rules are intended to temporarily supplement existing pool complex rules. Where there is a conflict between the existing rules and the temporary rules, the temporary rules prevail.
  2. The Board has passed these temporary rules in order to allow residents to conditionally use a portion of the Association’s amenities. With that stated, it is the Board’s expectation that all residents will comply with these temporary rules. If any resident is found to be in non-compliance with any of these, or any other Association rules, the Board reserves the right to enforce said rules as it deems appropriate within its authority.

Please note that Swim Lessons will be taking place each week, Tuesday & Thursday

from 1:00 pm to 5:30 pm in the shallow end of the lap pool near the stairs/railing.
