WASHINGTON (AP) - The Justice Department says it is extending to next Jan. 31 a deadline for making existing swimming pools accessible to the disabled.
The deadline was originally this coming Monday.
The department determined that an extension was necessary to provide additional time for compliance and to respond to concerns and misunderstandings about the standards. The department is preparing a technical assistance document to assist pool owners with a government regulation on standards for accessible design.
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, places of public accommodation in existing facilities are required to remove accessibility barriers to the extent that is readily achievable.
