For those who wish to participate, the staff at UMROI has some additional information to share:

  • Leave jewelry at home or in a locker.
  • Do not use perfumes or lotions prior to getting in the pool
  • If you have open wounds, active infections, or bowel/bladder issues, you cannot enter the pool.
