Public swimming pools have gotten the greenlight as Long Island reopens from coronavirus shutdowns and many public facilities are welcoming patrons back to the waters. Much like beaches, which had limited openings Memorial Day weekend, access for now is limited to residents (and in some cases, their guests). Social distancing guidelines are in effect, including steps to limit capacity, although officials universally say masks are not required for those actually in the pool.
