COVID-19 Info

Coaching Staff and the Board of Directors are working together to develop safe return to swimming plans. 

To assist in drafting these documents we have used the published guidelines from the following organizations;


Before sending your swimmer to practice please perform the following check. The check is the same as the one published by the School Districts and is as follow;

1. Key Symptoms of Illness – Does your child have any of the following symptoms?

  • Fever

  • Chills

  • Cough or worsening of chronic cough

  • Shortness of Breath

  • Loss of sense of smell or taste

  • Diarrhea

  • Nausea and vomiting

If you answered “YES” to one of the questions above (excluding fever) your child should stay home for 24 hours from when the symptom started. If the symptom improves, your child may return to swimming when they feel well enough. If the symptom persists or worsens, seek a health assessment.

If you answered “YES” to two or more of the questions included above or if they have fever, seek a health assessment. A health assessment includes calling 8-1-1, or a primary care provider like a physician or a nurse practitioner. If a health assessment is required, your child should not return to swimming until COVID-19 has been excluded and the symptoms have improved.

When a COVID-19 test is recommended by the health assessment:

  • If the COVID-19 test is positive, your child should stay home until you are told by public health to end self-isolation. In most cases, this is 10 days after the onset of symptoms. Public health will contact everyone with a positive test.

  • If the COVID-19 test is negative, your child can return to swimming once symptoms have improved and your child feels well enough. Symptoms of common respiratory illnesses can persist for a week or more. Re-testing is not needed unless you develop a new illness.

  • If a COVID-19 test is recommended but is not done because you choose not to have the test, or you do not seek a health assessment when recommended, and the symptoms are not related to a previously diagnosed health condition, your child should stay home from swimming until 10 days after the onset of symptoms, and then your child may return if they are feeling well enough.

If a COVID-19 test is not recommended by the health assessment, your child can return to swimming when symptoms improve, and your child feels well enough. Testing may not be recommended if the assessment determines that the symptoms are due to another cause (i.e. not COVID-19).

2. International Travel - Have you returned from travel outside Canada in the last 14 days?

3. Confirmed Contact - Are you a confirmed contact of a person confirmed to have COVID-19?

If you answered “YES” to questions 2 or 3, use the COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool to determine if you should be tested for COVID-19.


At this time we are waiting for the NVRC to complete all their Facility Plans. As plans are finalized we will produce our Return to Swimming plan for each facility we use and publish them below.
