Pandemic mitigation will end as we head into summer, with the exception of the continuation of the mask mandate. As a result, the Mt. Lebanon Recreation Department is happy to announce we will be able to operate the swim center with our normal attendance and hours.

What does this mean?

  • You do not need a reservation to enter the pool
  • Starting May 31, admission will not be subject to a pandemic-related cap. As in previous years, pool staff will temporarily halt admission if additional attendance would lead to overcrowding.
  • We will follow current CDC and state guidelines, including masking. Social distancing and frequent handwashing are encouraged. At this point, if you are vaccinated, you do not have to wear a mask outside but unvaccinated individuals must wear one when not in the water, unless 6 feet of distance can be maintained from those outside of your household.
  • We will offer lap swim as usual and one daily open swim session as usual
  • We will update the schedule, rules and hours on our website soon. We just wanted to get the good news out to you!

Pool memberships (season passes) are available online through Thursday, May 20. After that, you must buy the passes in person at the Recreation Center second floor offices through May 29. Hours: Monday and Tuesday (except May 18), 12-2 p.m. and 5-8 p.m.; Saturdays, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. You must bring picture ID, proof of residency (if purchasing a resident pass), and each member of the family who will use the pass to have a picture taken (unless uploaded to your online account in advance).

Purchase pool passes here.

Mission Accomplished! Over the last year, Neighborhood Aid’s network of volunteers stepped in to make sure vulnerable Dormont and Mt. Lebanon residents had essential items, allowing them to stay safe at home during the quarantine.


Since its inception, Neighborhood Aid answered 388 phone calls for assistance, and its volunteers completed 169 resident tasks, such as making runs to grocery stores, food banks, pharmacies and fulfilling deliveries of masks, laundry, mail and even a few rolls of quarters for laundry. We are eternally grateful to the volunteers who gave their time to help others. Now that we no longer have regular calls for help, we have ended the Neighborhood Aid service. If you should need assistance with pandemic-related issues, you can call 211, or check out our resource guide at www.neighborhoodaid.org.

Many thanks to state Rep. Dan Miller, the Borough of Dormont and the Municipality of Mt. Lebanon for making Neighborhood Aid such a bright spot in so many lives.

POOL OPENS MAY 29TH!!!

Many of you have been asking … and the Mt. Lebanon Recreation Department is thrilled to answer: YES, the Mt. Lebanon Swim Center will be OPEN this season, with the first day set for Saturday, May 29.

As you might expect, we still have a lot of details to confirm but here’s what we can say today: Our focus this summer, as always, is on safe fun, so we will have some operational changes.

First, to ensure we can have adequate space, we will be scheduling several swim sessions each operational day, with thorough cleaning and sanitizing between each session. We will have up to two 1-hour lap swim sessions per day, and two 3-hour open swims each day. Sessions will have a limited number of swimmers — 18 per lap swim and 300 per open swim to start (subject to change throughout the season).

We are still working on costs but you will be able to purchase passes or choose to pay a daily swim rate for a reasonable rate. In order to attend either a lap swim or open session, you will need to make a reservation online. You will also be able to cancel your reservations online. If you don’t show up for your reservation and you haven’t cancelled, fees will apply so that we can ensure access for as many people as possible.

We will continue to update you as our procedures take shape. But in the meantime, pick out this year’s bathing suit because the Summer of ’21 is on its way! Click here for more information.

The Municipal Building, 710 Washington Road, is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. for tasks that cannot be handled online. Most questions you have or paperwork you need to file can be done online at www.mtlebanon.org. We ask that you check there first before coming in. Tax bills and other payments can be made in the boxes on the outside of the building.

If you do need to come inside, masks are required (unless you have a health condition that prohibits it) and will be provided to you if you do not have one. Physical distancing of at least six feet between other building guests and staff is also required. The lobby is open with an information kiosk and phone list so you can complete your tasks with the least amount of contact with others, to protect the safety of our visitors and staff.  Please observe all posted signs and warnings. We do reserve the right to re-close facilities if we find public behavior to be detrimental to health and safety. We appreciate all your contributions to keeping Mt. Lebanon safe.

Please note that masks are required in all municipal facilities and you must observe physical distancing of at least six feet. Please cover all sneezes and coughs with your elbow and properly wash hands or use sanitizer.

The municipality will continue to carefully monitor the public behavior and COVID-19 cases. If the public is not in compliance or if cases continue to rise, we may close facilities once again. We are in this together! Thank you!

Updated - 3:25 p.m.

In a meeting with Mt. Lebanon emergency medical services professionals today, we learned that medics are seeing patients who are waiting too long to call an ambulance for critical medical issues because they are concerned with catching COVID-19 at the hospital. Kaitlin Shotsberger, St. Clair Hospital’s executive director of quality care and management, says patients should absolutely call 9-1-1 if they are having a medical emergency and that the hospital is taking steps to ensure COVID-19 patients are separated from others having medical issues.

She also noted the hospital’s triage line, 412-942-2600, is available weekdays, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., to help and direct patients who feel they might have the disease. People who suspect they have COVID-19 should not report to the hospital without calling their personal physician, hospital triage or 9-1-1 first.
