Waterworks Swim School Safety Measures

 

Waterworks' mission has always been to educate and motivate individuals to be safer and learn proper swimming technique. 

In collaboration with public health officials, the United States Swim School Association, and facility operators, Waterworks has created a safe facility use plan that is compliant with public health directives.

Please take a moment to review the steps we are taking below.

 

Safety Measures for our Customers and Employees:

  • Face coverings are required to be worn by all families (including children 2 years & older) at all times. Details of the California order can be found here.
  • Swim Instructors are required to wear a facemask at all times when teaching their lessons. 
  • If you are sick or showing symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home and get well.
  • If you have been exposed to COVID-19, please abide by the CDC recommended 14-day quarantine.
  • All employees have been told not to come to work if they are sick.
  • Any employee that comes to work feeling sick and/or shows COVID-19 symptoms will be sent home immediately.
  • Symptom checks may be conducted before employees enter the workplace.
  • Ongoing training will be conducted to ensure all team members are taking preventive steps to ensure the health and safety of themselves and the families we serve.

 

Social Distancing Measures:

  • Only one parent/guardian per swimmer in the club
  • Students are encouraged to arrive and leave the club wearing their swimsuit. Note: The changing pods will not be available at this time.
  • Please wait until the start of your lesson to enter the club. We ask that you enter and exit the pool area of the club using the emergency exit door. Please wait until the start of your lesson to enter the club. Note: We are aware that some of the clubs we operate from do not have these doors. In this case, you will enter and exit through the main entrance to the club.
  • Parents will need to escort their swimmer(s) to their swim instructor.
  • Everyone will need to maintain at least 6 feet distance from each other with the exception of family members who share the same household.
  • Restrooms will be available for use, but we ask to maintain social distancing upon entering and exiting the restrooms.
  • We encourage all families to limit the time they are in the club to the extent of their swim lesson. Please exit immediately at the end of your lesson. This will help us maintain a lower number of people in the pool area at one time.

 

Sanitation Efforts:

  • Hand sanitizer will be made available to our team members and customers.
  • Soap and water are available to all customers and employees.
