Yes, but this has become an issue in my district in central NJ. Many outdoor community pools didn't open this summer and indoor pools are still closed. In more dense neighborhoods, a lot of families only have above-ground pools. So quite a few units in our area have struggled to figure out a viable option for scouts who are hitting this requirement as their only impediment to advancing, which is a surefire way to disenchant them with the program.
This is especially an issue for new scouts who are 14-15 (as many new girls are) who might not make it to Eagle if they have to delay advancing at all for another 6 months, on top of the last 6.
And it's important to note, the requirement still exists, it's only being deferred.
