COVID-19 POLICIES FOR LAKE FOREST AMENITIES
Consistent with guidance from the County, and to comply with guidelines for social distancing and current orders and rules regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Directors announced the following rules on June 5, 2020 for use of the swimming pool, Central Bark and the tennis/pickleball courts.
 
Guests at Lake Forest amenities must always be accompanied by a resident. Guests should be met outside a gate and escorted in by a resident to the Lake Forest amenity, or they must be registered as guests and meet the resident at his/her home.
