  2. Participants/swimmers will be asked a series of questions related to symptoms of COVID-19, these questions are provided to us by the CDC and Shasta County Health Department.  
  3. Participants will have their temperature taken prior to entering the facility.

Again, parents/guardians may accompany young children at the check in table during the health screening. The check-in table is located at the bottom on the east side stairs of the Shasta College Pool.  Parent must wear face mask.
