The 2021 Cool Sweep season runs through August 28. Cool Sweeps do not take place on Sundays.
A Cool Sweep operation is triggered when the forecast calls for temperatures to reach or exceed 85 degrees. When temperatures are forecasted to be 90 degrees and above, a Cool Sweep Heat Emergency will be initiated. During a Heat Emergency, the Cool Sweep program extends to the Gantt R-Center and certain branch libraries.
Residents taking advantage of these sites are asked to abide by capacity limits and posted COVID-19 restrictions.
City pools will open to the public on Tuesday, July 6.
