Waterworks Swim School Safety Measures

 

Waterworks' mission has always been to educate and motivate individuals to be safer and learn proper swimming technique. It is important to our company that we re-open in a safe, science-based, and socially responsible manner.

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. Keep in mind, this is not the full list. To view the full summary, please click on the button below.

 

Safety & Social Distancing Measures:

  • Facemasks are required to be worn by all families and employees when approaching the club, while in the club, and when exiting.
  • Touch-free temperature scans will be conducted on our team members. Temperatures at or in excess of 100.3 degrees will be refused entry.
  • Temperature scans may also be performed on our swim school families when they enter the club. This may vary by club location.
  • Everyone will need to maintain at least 6 feet distance from each other with the exception of family members who share the same household.
  • Semi-private swim lessons will be 10 minutes in length. The Instructor will teach each student separately in the semi-private lesson.
  • If there are two siblings (who share the same household) in the same semi-private lesson, they will receive 20 minutes.
  • Swim Instructors will be spaced out (6 feet) in the pool.
  • Students are encouraged to arrive and leave the club wearing their swimsuit.
  • If you are sick or showing symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home and get well.
  • 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.

 

Sanitation Efforts:

  • Instructors will be disinfecting shared surfaces multiple times per day. These areas include (not limited to): chairs, benches, and changing tents.
  • Sanitizing spray will be made available to our customers to wipe down any shared surfaces before and after each use.
  • Hand sanitizer will be made available to our team members and customers.
  • Soap and water are available to all customers and employees.
  • Disinfectant and related supplies are available to all employees.

 

Chlorine Clean Pools:

  • NOTE: There is no evidence that the virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to people through the water in pools. Visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/water.html
  • We will continue to ensure the fitness clubs maintain a well-balanced, chlorinated pool per the CDC and local health department requirements.
