To comply with Oregon Health Authority’s mandates and restrictions for aquatic center operations, the facility will be open at 25% capacity and the aquatic center will be utilizing a reservation system where patrons will have access to the facility in 45 minute increments at the top of each open hour. The facility will close for 15 minutes hourly to allow staff to fully sanitize all use areas.  Masks and a short health screening will be required to enter the facility and all health and safety measures will be in place to ensure staff and community safety. The Astoria Aquatic Center will only be open for operation when the county is classified at High Risk level or lower.

Employee of the Month

We couldn't choose between our excellent Aquatics staff members to highlight for Employee of the Month, so we decided to honor all three!  Lead Lifeguards Ethan McCarley and Susan Principe, and Aquatics Recreation Coordinator Peter von Payens have all been instrumental in supporting the U.S. Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers practicing at the facility and are working hard to help us reopen the AAC in March.  The combined institutional knowledge and ability of this group has been indispensable in keeping our facility running safely, we are so grateful for their hard work and excited to continue utilizing their talents as we look to reopen!
