Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that indoor swimming pools will be allowed to reopen with capacity restrictions on Sept. 30.
Indoor swimming facilities will open at occupancy limits of 33% capacity.
"As New York City continues its gradual reopening and economic recovery, we're proud to announce we are ready to reopen indoor pools," de Blasio said in a statement. "Swimming pools are a community anchor, an exercise center and an oasis in their neighborhoods—both literally and figuratively."
