As if our hearts couldn't break anymore, Commissioners Court approved to keep all county pools closed all summer long, to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

If you do not believe me, check the post by Ascarate Park below:

Now that you believe me, I know you probably don't want it to be true. El Pasoans love their pools but we have a bigger need to stay healthy. The news maybe shocking to some because we just got into April, but honestly, we need to prepare for the future.

Pools that will be affected are the El Paso, Texas County Pools in
Ascarate, Fabens and Gallegos.

My little town of Fabens adores their pool and it is a place many people gather. Which makes it a perfect places to for COVID-19 to incubate. We rather be safe than sorry, so while this decision might be a bummer, it is what needs to be done. Make sure to keep practicing social distincing and following the Cit and County's 'Stay Home, Work Safe' Order. If we follow it now, the sooner, we can get back to our everyday habits.
