Cleaning

Enhanced sanitizing protocols are in place.

All swim props and scuba rental/training gear is disinfected after each use.

Frequent disinfecting of all commonly touched areas.

Enhanced hourly and daily cleaning checklists.

mask icon

Masks

The CDC states “People age 2 and older should wear masks in public settings and when around people who don’t live in their household.​” We are following all state and local mask regulations.

The rigorous water emergency response training that our team has completed is done without masks, so muscle memory of how to respond in an emergency does not include removing a mask. Therefore masks pose a drowning risk to our swimmers and staff while in the natatorium. Some locations may use plastic face shields.

thermometer icon

Staff health screening

All staff have their temperature checked and are screened for symptoms and risk factors.

hand washing station icon

Hygiene

Please wash your hands often. Soap and hand sanitizer are available throughout the building.

arrow icon

Physical distancing

We are practicing physical distancing, maintaining 6 feet between each other.

waves icon

Water and HVAC

We sanitize our pool using sand filters and chlorination.

Plus, our pool water is filtered every 4 hours using UV filters.

Our natatorium is on its own, separate air handling and filtration system.

We automatically and manually check the chemical levels in our pool every 4 hours.

The CDC states there is no evidence of the virus spreading in pools and proper operation and sanitation of pools should remove or inactivate the virus.
