The Iola Municipal Pool had slated to open Monday, but officials are holding off, because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Tentative plans are to open the pool on July 6, unless the number of coronavirus patients rises locally.

City leaders are pushing back their plans to open the Iola Municipal Pool, at least a week.

Interim Iola City Administrator Corey Schinstock announced this morning the delay, citing a recent rise in confirmed COVID-19 cases in Allen County.

“With five cases in Allen County, I just don’t feel comfortable opening the pool at this time,” Schinstock said.
