A staffing shortage in Poughkeepsie is forcing the city to close down its pools.
On Friday, all city pools will be closed as lifeguards head back to school.
That means no swimming this weekend at the Pulaski Park Pool on Washington Street and Spratt Park Pool on Wilbur Boulevard.
News 12 is told more than 800 people have visited the pools this year.
