ORO VALLEY, Ariz. — Oro Valley's recreation facilities are set to reopen on June 1.

According to the Town of Oro Valley's Parks and Recreation Department, reopening these facilities required new safety modifications and training to more than 120 staff members on new sanitation procedures.

New guidelines that promote social distancing were released to the public Friday. These policies will be in place at both the Oro Valley Community & Recreation Center and Oro Valley Aquatic Center.

Oro Valley Aquatic Center says they are only open for reserved lap swimming.
