Default stormalong covid and slides? are they open? masks to get across sidewalk?

We are going in a few weeks to 'ol BCV. We are planning a slow-paced trip with plenty of pool time.

My son and I both love the water slides, especially the tall one. Does anyone know how that works with covid protocols? In case you aren't aware, you have to actually exit the pool deck and cross a sidewalk to get to the slide entrance at stormalong.

I am kind of assuming they just sort of treat that patch of sidewalk as pool deck, but I want to make sure I'm not in for a shock.

Thanks!

No mask for the slides and pools.

We were there on spring break a few weeks ago. We went to stormalong one day and after that decided there were too many people for our comfort so we used the "hidden" quiet pool (hidden because BCH is not yet open to guests) which we had completely to ourselves several times.

Generally masks can come off once you are in the pool area, walking to slides, between pools, etc. Plenty of people sunbathing without them in their chairs also.

Supposed to mask up before leaving the pool area to get food, use the restroom, etc.

In October we found even the BCV quiet pool to be quiet enough in the morning. We had thought about the "hidden" quiet pool, but there was really ne need.

Even SAB was not too bad one day, but we don't go there often anyway.

Cheers.

Youíll be fine. They canít insist on mask wearing walking from the main pool to the slide entrance since you canít wear them coming down the slide.

We just got back. Masks are not required in the pool area or when going to the big slide. The pool area is pretty relaxed as far as Covid is concerned.

I've walked past that "hidden" pool any number of times, but don't recall ever seeing anyone in it. They could fill it with Jello™ and I swear no one (except you) would notice.

Thatís the one towards Epcot? Where the laundry is.

Back on our first onsite stay we used it! It was close to our room and I had laundry to do.
