What sports and recreational activities are allowed? (CCHealth 6/9/2020)
Outdoor activities in which people can maintain physical distancing from each other are allowed. The following outdoor activities are permitted:
- Golf (though people should not share carts)
- Tennis (singles, not doubles)
- Skate parks
- Swimming in outdoor pools
- Shooting and archery ranges
Guidance (CDC, 2020) "There is no evidence that the virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to people through the water in pools, hot tubs, spas, or water play areas," the CDC said on its website. "Proper operation and maintenance (including disinfection with chlorine and bromine) of these facilities should inactivate the virus in the water."
(From CCHealth June 18, 2020)
People in California must wear face coverings when they are in the high-risk situations listed below:
- While outdoors in public spaces when maintaining a physical distance of 6 feet from persons who are not members of the same household or residence is not feasible.
The following individuals are exempt from wearing a face covering:
- Persons age two years or under. These very young children must not wear a face covering because of the risk of suffocation.
- Persons for whom wearing a face covering would create a risk to the person related to their work, as determined by local, state, or federal regulators or workplace safety guidelines.
- Persons who are engaged in outdoor work or recreation such as swimming, walking, hiking, bicycling, or running, when alone or with household members, and when they are able to maintain a distance of at least six feet from others.
- Note: Persons exempted from wearing a face covering due to a medical condition who are employed in a job involving regular contact with others should wear a non-restrictive alternative, such as a face shield with a drape on the bottom edge, as long as their condition permits it.
Section 10 - Outdoor pools are also subject to the following conditions:
1.The maximum occupancy of the pool must be limited to a number that is less than or equal to the number of square feet of shared pool space divided by 75.
2.The pool operator must post a sign at or near the entrance to the pool facility that sets forth the maximum allowable occupancy of the pool based on the above limitation.
3.At least one person, separate from a lifeguard, paid or unpaid, shall be on duty at all times to ensure that the social distancing protocol applicable to the facility and all limitations herein are followed. The person performing this function may not be one of the swimmers in the pool.
Carson Swim School 2020 Operational Notes:
Below are CCHealth Covid-19 reccomendations Carson Swim School will follow for everyone’s safety:
- All participants are asked to use the Respiratory Illness Symptom Screening Tool at the following link: https://cchealth.org/coronavirus/pdf/Respiratory-Illness-Symptom-Screening-Tool-for-Parents-and-Caregivers.pdf @ home before coming to the facility. If your child does not pass this screening, do not bring them to the facility.
- All participants should shower and use the bathroom at home before arriving.
- Bathrooms are closed due to COVID-19 and will only be used in emergency situations.
- Participants should arrive and depart with their suits on. There will be no changing room or shower available.
- We ask parents to arrive no more than 5 minutes before participant start times and leave when finished.
- All registration and payments should be conducted over the phone when possible.
- Parents are asked to maintain social distancing guidelines upon entry and exit to the facility as marked, and be masked while at Carson Swim School.
- Please adhere to all signage and maintain proper distancing. No more than three customers will be allowed in the office at a time.
- We will be unable to have parents inside the pool area at this time.
- Hand sanitizer, disinfecting spray, paper towels, tissues, and no-touch trash cans will be available to all people on site. They are located on outside parent tables, in the office and at entry and exit locations.
- Parents are asked to closely monitor non-participating siblings and maintain distancing from others or remain in their car. Non-participating siblings over two years of age should be masked.
- In an aquatic setting the CDC says “those wearing face coverings should not wear them in the water because cloth face coverings can be difficult to breathe through when they are wet.” Shields will be worn by Carson Swim School employees in the water.
- In compliance with the CDC and CCHealth Department, Carson Swim School will be operating at less than 50% of capacity. We will be teaching all participants in a one-on-one setting (at the group lesson rate). All participants will maintain 6’ distancing from other participants.
- No Make-up lessons will be offered during July.
- To help keep distancing protocol, it is best that only one adult per student be at our facility each day.
