Updates as of 6/3/20
Thank you for your patience as we continue to move through our reopening stages of the amenities.
As the state and county are moving through more steps involved in the first stage of opening we are also opening more of our facilities here at Oakleaf. There are still some facilities that we cannot open or utilize yet (slides and attractions at the pools, rental areas, basketball courts, etc...) However, there are more facilities opening as of this week. Please read below (these will also be updated on our website).
To utilize many of our facilities, you will be asked to sign a waiver/release before entering. Any person not signing may not be permitted to enter/utilize the facilities. We will have copies at the desks ready to pick up and sign while you are waiting, we will also posts these on our website to print off to help expedite the process and increase your safety of less contact.
If you need to update or replace your Oakleaf ID cards please make sure you contact the Fitness Center for an appointment. The fitness center front desk at Double Branch (phase 1) will be open for the purpose of printing cards for limited hours (the gym and courts are not open). Cards will be done by appointment only Monday through Sunday from 8am until 12pm and then again from 2pm until 7pm. To help keep staff and residents safe and to follow distancing protocols only those appointment holders will be allowed in the facility. Please email (do not call) the fitness center: email@example.com with names and contact phone numbers to set your appointments. You will receive a phone call and email to go over all needed paperwork and confirmation of your appointment time. Please be reminded that these rules and our normal policies for usage will be in place.
Anyone not listening or adhering to staff direction or request may be asked to leave. In the case of any large issues (big groups trying to gather, unsafe or unruly behavior on deck, etc...) may require that staff clear our facilities and close down until further notice. This is the way we have to operate to be allowed to open under the state, federal, and local guidelines and expectations at this time.
Once again THANK YOU ALL for remaining patient and understanding.
The Fitness Center at Double Branch (phase 1) will open beginning today (Wednesday 6/3/2020). The Fitness Center at Middle Village (phase 2) will open on Friday 6/5/20.
Hours of Operation: Monday through Sunday 8am until 8pm. Facilities will open and close in two hour increments (Open 8-9:30 am and then close, Open 10-11:30 and then close, Open 12-1:30 and then close, Open 2-3:30 and then close, Open 4-5:30 and then close, 6-7:30 and then close for the evening)
The Fitness Centers will operate in the same fashion as the pools. We will have the facility open for 1.5 hrs and then closed down again for 30 minutes to clean the facility, high touch areas, and bathrooms. This closure time will also allow anyone waiting due to capacity limits a chance to be first in line to enter for the next "segment". Please be informed that no matter what time you enter you will still be asked to leave the building for the .5 hr cleaning time. You are welcome to come back for the next segment and work out again if there is space. At the moment we will not be limiting usage to reservation only, however if we find we are constantly hitting capacity and residents are not getting chances to workout, we will move to a reservation system.
limits for Double Branch will be 14 people on the fitness center floor. We have "cautioned" off alternating cardio machines and ask that each user be courteous of others while exercising as to not
use a strength machine directly next to someone else.
limits for Middle Village will be 7 people on the fitness center floor. We have cautioned off alternating cardio machines and ask that each user be courteous of others while exercising as to not use
a strength machine directly next to someone else.
The pools at Double Branch have a capacity maximum of 80 people at any given time. The pools at Middle Village have a maximum of 135 people. Please understand that we do not have lifeguards and the "attractions" of water-slides and spray-grounds will not be available for use (this will not be any different over this Holiday weekend). We have pool monitors on deck and may ask people to spread out and maintain "social distancing". At Middle Village we are not limiting our pool deck in the rear to "Adults only" at this time, we are allowing families to spread out more and utilize that space to help increase our capacity. That pool will be included in the operation of the entire pool deck for this time. THIS WILL REVERT BACK TO NORMAL IN LATER STAGES OF OPENING. At this time there will not be any "swim at your own risk" times available in the early morning or late evening hour. All Pools (at both Amenity Centers) will only operate during these hours and under this supervision.
Rules at both pools:
Hours of operation: Monday thru Sunday 10am-until 8pm, pools will open and close in two hour increments (Open 10-11:30 and then close, Open 12-1:30 and then close, Open 2-3:30 and then close, Open 4-5:30 and then close, 6-7:30 and then close for the evening). Each group/resident will come to the pool and get up to 1.5 hrs of swim time and then will be asked to leave the pool facilities. The staff will clean chairs, bathroom facilities, etc... in the final half hour of each segment, and then we will reopen for the next swim segment. Everyone will be required to leave the pool deck during the cleaning time.
Residents will line up in a first come first serve fashion to enter the pools. For those with reservations, there will be a separate line for entry at the time of your reservation. Residents (after waiting in line) are able to make reservations for days/times up to 48 hrs ahead of time for weekdays only (no weekend reservations). You may only make 1 reservation per household at a time per day. We will hold your reservation slot for 20 minutes, after which your slot may be given to a first come first serve waiting resident/group.
Coolers and food are not allowed. Please bring your own water bottles, as the water fountains will be unavailable at this time. There will not be any chairs or tables on deck during the first stage. Only a small number of lounge chairs will be available. These will be cleaned by staff during each segment.
Please come prepared to swim, there will not be shower or changing facilities available in the main bathrooms (you will be asked to shower at the on deck showers before entering the pool - as normal). We ask that restrooms be used only for those restroom needs. Normal swimsuit policies will apply. Please see our policies/website for more information if you are not familiar with our typical rules of use.
NO GUESTS (this includes longer term house-guests). During these times of capacity/limits, we do not feel that it would be fair to make residents wait outside while those who do not live in our community enjoy and use the facilities. Once we get through these stages we are eager to have all of your friends and family visit and enjoy the neighborhood. This also means that your Oakleaf ID cards will be extremely important. Please make sure cards are up to date with the correct information and active (lease renewals, new residents,etc...) you will not be allowed into facilities if your IDs are not correct.
There will be no exit and re-entry allowed. Please come prepared to move through the line as fast as we can get you through to enjoy your segmented time. In the first 30 minutes of the segmented time, we will allow a resident/family group into the facility if someone else has decided they are finished and leaving for the remainder of the segment. However, please be informed that no matter what time you enter you will still be asked to leave the pool deck for the .5 hr cleaning time. Users are always allowed to get back into line after they have exited the facility to wait and come in again.
Please be aware (while it may not be much of a problem at this time) our normal pool closures due to lightning/thunder are always in effect. If you have to leave due to thunder you may unfortunately lose the remainder of your segment. We also will not hold a place in line for anyone. We will attempt to give everyone a chance to sign up for an additional reservation if this occurs (we may be limited in our ability if it storms hard and fast and everyone is leaving for cover/safety).
Programs and Sports
While many organizations did have to cancel their seasons due to timing of closures and opening plans for safety - many have been working on programs that will be run safely and responsibly for this time and the upcoming season. The following are the only CDD approved sports organizations in Oakleaf, no other sports organizations or groups may utilize our areas for their programs. Please contact these organizations directly to inquire of programming:
Baseball, T-Ball, and Softball : www.oakleafsports.net
Youth Tackle Football and Cheer : www.oakleafsports.net
Basketball, Cheerleading, and Flag Football : www.i9sports.com
Oakleaf Summer Swim Team - Please stay tuned as we are finalizing our plans for a shortened training season for our swimmers. This will be a training/clinic style program and will not have an introductory or beginner group. Unfortunately, we will not be able to have those younger or less experienced swimmers as we will not be able to have enough direct coach and swimmer time that is needed to help teach and improve form enough to "learn to swim". As soon as we have more information such as capacities, timing, and rules that we must follow to have the program we will send out by email. We are hoping to start some time this next week.
