COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS - UPDATED

Please read the following safety protocols our swimmers, coaching staff and parents will need to follow at each of our pools. Remember, these protocols may change due to pool configurations or safety guideline developments. This is uncharted territory for all of us, but by working together, we can make the most of these trying times. There is always a possibility that the facility may have to close again with little or no notice based on current Government regulations and developments.

UPDATES:

  1. Swimmers may practice with other groups/locations if needed based on schedule. It is recommended that swimmers attend “home” group practices as much as possible.
  2. Mask policy update: In following with the facility/ISD guidelines, here are the current mask policies:
    1. SMU: No masks required if vaccinated. Those who have not received the vaccine, masks are recommended, but not required.
    2. LOOS: Masks required regardless of vaccination.
    3. HP: No masks required if vaccinated. Those who have not received the vaccine, masks are recommended, but not required.
