  • Participants will be asked to self-certify before entering the building.

  • If a participant has a fever or presents with any illness, they will not be allowed to complete their lesson and must return home. Participants will not be allowed to return until they are fever and symptom free for a minimum of 48 hours.

  • All staff and participants will be required to wear face masks in the facility. Participants may remove their masks upon entering the water.

  • Children should have no more than one adult accompany them to their lesson and arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to their lesson start time.

  • Swimmers and their adults will enter and exit through the double red emergency exit doors in the small pool.

  • Adult viewing areas will be limited to accommodate only one parent/caregiver to ensure physical distancing.

  • Swimmers must come in their swim suits ready for their lessons as locker rooms/changing rooms will not be available.

  • To minimize exposure, the pool deck will have arrows in one direction to allow for one-way traffic through the facility and ensure strict 6 ft. physical distancing.

  • Noodles, kickboards and fins will be used during lessons. No diving rings or squirt toys will be utilized.

  • Markers along the pools edge spaced 6 ft. apart will be visible to guide participants as they wait their turn for instruction during their lesson time.

  • Swim instructors will wear a face shield or mask at all times as an added safety precaution when in close contact with swimmers. Contact between the instructor and child will be minimized as much as possible.

  • All surfaces will be sanitized regularly in between lesson groups.
