The city of Carpinteria’s Junior Lifeguard Program was back up and running as of Monday, Aug. 3. The program was suspended the week before due to an instructor’s exposure to a person who tested positive for Covid-19. Since then, the Covid-19 test results of staff members have come back negative and the quarantine period has expired. Session 3 began as scheduled on Monday, Aug. 3, and participants were required to continue to follow the health and safety protocols implemented throughout the program. Session 3 is full, and prorated refunds for Session 2 are in process. Anyone with questions regarding refunds should contact Parks & Recreation Director Matt Roberts at (805) 755-4449 or
