Please do not park on the road at the back of the pool although it's fine to drop off and pick up kayaks from there. Please wash your kayak at home or outside the building. Form a human chain with others: people outside pass kayaks to barefooted people inside. Everyone out of the pool by 2030 and everything out of the building & compound by 2045.
