The City of Palm Springs would like to advise the community that the Palm Springs Swim Center will temporarily shut down for at least the next ten days due to an increase in COVID-19 exposures amongst staff that has left the facility unable to efficiently operate.

The City will notify the community when the Swim Center is once again able to re-open to the public.

On as Thursday January 6th 2022,  the City of Palm Springs closed City facilities  to walk-in traffic due to a surge in COVID-19 cases that continues to impact the community at large as well as City Staff.

The following changes are still in effect  for at least the next two to three weeks and will be re-evaluated as new data about COVID cases becomes available.

• City Clerk, Planning, Engineering, Building, Business license and other services are now available by phone call, or email. Appointments will be accepted for work that cannot reasonably be done by phone or email from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., Monday-Thursday.
