The Bucks County Department of Health has determined that Public Bathing Places and Organized Camps may open in the Yellow designation of the Governor’s Order.  In order to open in this designation, the facility should make their usual checks with the local municipality for any additional requirements, and may want to discuss the ramifications of opening with their insurance carrier.  Finally, please review the attached guidance for safe opening, and incorporate and/or add it to your own plan.  Submit that plan for review to this Department, along with the application and fee, for your operating Certificate of Registration.
