CHICAGO - The Chicago Park District is closing indoor pools because of a lack of lifeguards.
Irene Tostado of the Chicago Park District told FOX 32 News that "indoor pools will close today [Wednesday] with the possibility of reopening at a later date."
The Chicago Park District said it is still continuing to try to hire enough lifeguards, offering $15.57 per hour and "one of the best office views in Chicago."
Lifeguard shortages are an issue across Chicago's suburbs and the nation. Indiana beaches reported a shortage of lifeguards earlier this summer.
