LITTLE CHUTE, Wis. (WFRV) – Little Chute’s Doyle Pool and Slide are reopening Monday after being closed while a staff member awaited coronavirus test results.
According to the Village of Little Chute, the pool will open for senior and adult lap swim at noon. Afternoon swim lessons will take place in the evening.
“As we mentioned from the beginning of this summer, the number one priority of the village will be the health and well-being of our staff and the general public. This includes shutting down the pool immediately if there are any health-related concerns. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we worked through the situation,” the Village said in a Monday morning Facebook post.
Meanwhile, the Menasha Pool is closed until further notice out of an abundance of caution after a member of the pool staff had off-site contact with a person who tested positive for coronavirus.

LITTLE CHUTE, Wis. (WFRV) – Little Chute’s Doyle Pool and Slide will be closed until further notice while a staff member awaits the results of a coronavirus test.
Doyle Pool is one of just a handful of Northeast Wisconsin swim areas choosing to remain open this summer. The pool opened for the season on June 7. On June 14, the pool closed temporarily “due to a health-related matter.” The Village of Little Chute later shared that the pool closed after learning an employee was not feeling well and was seeking medical attention.
In a Friday Facebook post, the Village shared Doyle Pool will remain closed until the staff member receives the test results. Village officials say “there is very low to no risk to the general public who were at the pool earlier this week.”
Green Bay’s Colburn Pool was scheduled to open in early July, but a recent announcement from the Green Bay Parks, Recreation, and Forestry Department says the pool’s opening has been delayed.
Multiple swimming spaces across Northeast Wisconsin will remain closed this summer, including:
- City of Appleton pools
- Ashwaubomay Lake in Ashwaubenon
- Outagamie County’s Plamann Lake
- Oshkosh’s Pollock Water Park
