OVID-19 POLICIES FOR AGGIE SWIM CLUB:

All:

Below is some information on how the Club will handle the COVID-19 situation.  Please remember the most important ways you can help prevent the transmission of the virus:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.  Use an alcohol-based sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Cover your cough by using your sleeve or arm -- not your hands.
  • Limit touching your eyes, mouth and nose.
  • Clean and disinfect commonly-touched areas of your home frequently.
  • Stay away from those who are sick.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • If you are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath, contact your physician immediately.

 

Please keep our Ags coaching staff informed if your swimmer has tested positive for COVID-19.  Early notification and containment is the best practice to keep the virus from spreading.  We will continue to monitor the situation and base all decisions on CDC, State and local government recommendations.

Information and resources about COVID-19 can be found on the CDC website.
