The Hannibal Aquatic Center will be closed the rest of this week.

According to the Hannibal Parks and Recreation Department, the closing of the pool is due to multiple employees testing positive for the COVID-19 virus.

The Aquatic Center is scheduled to reopen Saturday, August 7th, but parks and rec officials will spend the week monitoring staff, and if additional positive tests come, the reopening date may change.

The Hannibal Parks and Recreation Department emphasizes that the health and safety of staff and the public is their number one priority.
