*Updated face mask policy*

As many of our athletes begin in-person school, we want to remind and update everyone on Swim San Diego's mask policy.

This policy is based on the university's requirement for face masks along with SSD staying proactive in providing a safe environment for all of our members.

For our swimmers and parents at all Natatorium practices, face masks must be worn at all times inside the facility.  Swimmers need to have their masks on up until we enter the pool and back on when we exit the pool.  For parents watching from inside the pool, you must have a face mask on.  For parents watching from outside of the pool you are not required to have a face mask on, but if you enter the pool you do need to have a mask on.  This is per university requirement.

For our swimmers and parents at the Canyonview Aquatic Facility, you must have a face mask on when you enter the building.  This does include the lockerrooms.  On the pool deck, masks are not required, but encouraged.  

All members of the coaching staff have been fully vaccinated and may coach maskless while at Canyonview Aquatic Facility, but do need to have a mask on while coaching at the Natatorium.

We appreciate everyone following these guidelines to protect our swimmers, especially those that have not been vaccinated.

We continue to stress the importance of preventing the spread of infection and share the following information being circulated by healthcare officials:

  1. Avoid getting closer than six feet to anyone coughing or sneezing
  2. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer that has 60-95% alcohol. This is especially important after going to the bathroom, before eating, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing
  3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  4. Cover your mouth with a tissue or your elbow if you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash, and then wash your hands
  5. Stay home if you are sick, and away from the pool and from fellow team members
  6. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces regularly
  7. Monitor the WHO and CDC websites for travel advisories and follow their recommendations
