KENOSHA — Due to the unpredictable future of COVID-19, the City of Kenosha has decided to close all city pools for the entire summer.

The public pools at Washington Park and Anderson park will be closed for the remainder of the 2020 season.

City administrators decided not to open the pools in June like usual, and will not reschedule an opening date.

The city says opening later in the season would lead to challenges when it comes to filling lifeguard positions.
