What precautions are you taking to reduce illness and exposure?
We have greatly reduced class sizes and participation in swim lessons. The pool facility and high contact points will be regularly sanitized.
Does COVID-19 live in pool water?
According to the CDC, “There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of recreational waters. Follow safe swimming practices along with social distancing and everyday preventative actions to protect yourself.” CDC website
Will you add more chlorine to the pool to help kill COVID-19?
Our pool is maintained by a Certified Pool Operator who checks and balances the pool chemistry each day to ensure our pool is within the required levels for public bathing. Over-chlorination of the pool will not kill the virus and will interrupt the pH balance of the pool water.
Why don’t you have very many swim lesson spots available?
We have greatly reduced the number of participants for swimming lessons in order to comply with the county’s guidelines for safely operating a public pool facility. We have made as many spots available as we feel we can safely accommodate the public.
