Updated 2020 Pool Guidelines& Rules


The pool will be opened with the following understandings:
  • Per Executive order of Governor Greg Abbott, currently the pool may operate at up to 50%capacity. This would be 60 people for our pool.This limit may be changed upon the Governor’s order. This is self-policing. If you see more than 60people,come back later.  If the HOA is notified by any City agency of this guideline being violated, the pool may be closed.
  • Everyone must use available resources to adhere to the Governor’s minimum standard health protocols currently published at www.dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus.
    • Avoid being in groups larger than 10
    • Minimize in-person contact with others not in that individual's group
    • Maintain 6 ft.separation from members not in that individual's group
    • Consider wearing a face covering or mask when not in water
    • Wash or disinfect hands after any interaction with others outside your group or after contact with common items
    • Clean and sanitize recreation water equipment before and after use
    • Self-screen before arriving at pool(if you are sick,do not come to the pool)
  • Also,from the Texas Department of State Health Services Protocol for Parks/Beaches/Bodies of Water (including Pools):  The virus that causes COVID-19 can spread to others by infected persons who have few or no symptoms.  Even if an infected person is only mildly ill, the people they spread it to may become seriously ill or even die, especially if that person is 65 or older with pre-existing health conditions that place them at higher risk.Because of the hidden nature of this threat, everyone should rigorously follow the practices specified in these protocols, all of which facilitate a safe and measured reopening of Texas. The virus that causes COVID-19 is still circulating in our communities. We should continue to observe practices that protect everyone, including those who are most vulnerable. 
  • Additional information regarding the pool:
    • Pool chairs will be locked and unavailable for general use. For now, members will need to bring a chair if they wish to use one
    • The water cooler will not be available
    • Bring your own hand sanitizer and/or wipes
    • Refer to the “Braddock Place Estates HOA Pool Rules 2020” for additional information
  • By entering the pool gate, the homeowner/family member/guest:
    • Acknowledges reading and accepting the above rules and guidelines
    • Acknowledges an understanding of COVID related risks
    • Accepts these COVID related risks as they apply to our HOA's pool and its use 

Pool Guidelines

Upon purchasing your new home, you became a member of the Homeowners' Association (HOA). All HOA members - in good standing - have access to the Community Amenities. The pool and cabana are behind a key card-access gate for security reasons. YOU MUST HAVE AN ACCESS KEY CARD TO ENTER THE POOL AREA. One card is allowed per household and cards are good year after year. If you do not have a card or are in need of a replacement card, contact NMI by e-mail at poolkey@nmitx.com. Remember, it is not recommended that anyone swim alone and there is No Lifeguard on Duty so supervision of children is MANDATORY.
