Swimming and Coronavirus

The latest information for the leisure industry is that the swimming pool is safe as the chlorine in the water deactivates the virus.

The pool water is constantly tested and a minimum level of chlorine is always maintained, meaning there is no possibility of waterborne contamination.

All necessary steps to ensure that we protect against the risk of Coronavirus are being taken in accordance with government guidelines. This includes regular and thorough disinfection throughout the changing rooms, reception and doorways. Hand sanitiser is on on the reception desk and at the sinks in the changing rooms.

However, if you or the children are feeling unwell, please use our “make up policy” and let us know that you are staying home.

Reception will help you with re arrange all make up lessons when you return.

Staff and swimmers should follow the NHS guidelines and ensure that all pool users shower before and after using the pool.

The pool managers will continue to closely follow the advice of Public Health England and will adhere to any recommendations the government may make regarding the best practice for the health of the community.
