COVID UPDATE: SWIMMING LESSONS
On June 5th, the state of California issued COVID-19 Industry Guidance: Campgrounds, RV Parks, and Outdoor Recreation. Pages 14-15 reference guidance for pools [PDF]. State guidance is very restrictive and minimizes public offerings. In light of restrictions and recognizing the importance of learn-to-swim programs, the City will ONLY offer semi-private swim lessons for area residents for summer 2020. The following guidelines have been compiled with guidance from Riverside County, the State of California, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Red Cross, and other state and national aquatics organizations:
- All students must pre-register using the City’s online registration portal.
- Facility entry will be limited to direct-deck gate access.
- It is recommended that participants enter with no more than 1 adult per child swimmer
- Swimmers should not arrive to the facility more than 10 minutes before scheduled class time and must line up outside the gate (in accordance with social distancing requirements) and will be allowed entry 5 minutes prior to the start of class. All participants must immediately exit the pool facility immediately at the close of class to allow for facility cleaning/sanitizing.
- All individuals must wear a mask when not in the water.
- All staff will have their temperature checked when reporting to pool site and must also adhere to screening measures listed below.
- Any swimmers/patrons with the following symptoms are asked to stay home and/or avoid entering the facility:
- Temperature greater than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Chills or fever
- Muscle pain
- Sore throat
- Loss of taste or smell
- GI issues or diarrhea
- Close contact with an individual with any of the above symptoms or known COVID-19
Cleaning, Maintenance, and Protective Measures
- Staff will have appropriate Personal Protective Equipment: disposable gloves, face masks, and disinfectant solutions (chlorine and bleach).
- Stanchions to mark entrance and exit paths with markers for 6ft to ensure physical distancing.
- Locker rooms and restrooms will be limited to the public.
- Information and restrictions will be included on the registration waiver, published via social media, and signage will be posted throughout the facility.
- Swimmers will be issued their own equipment during their lesson. Equipment will be disinfected between sessions.
- Staff will disinfect deck and high-touch areas (railings, diving boards, pool edges, etc.) between and during sessions as needed.
- Staff assigned to disinfection will wear goggles, gloves, and masks, and will utilize a pump spray bottle for maximum efficiency.
- Chlorine water (matching approved CDC levels) will be sprayed on areas adjacent to pool so that runoff does not affect pool chemistry.
- Free chlorine at 2 ppm to 4 ppm (ideal) with maximum of 10 ppm
- pH range between 7.4 to 7.6
- Pool deck edge, safety railings, diving blocks, lifeguard towers, lesson equipment, etc.
- Bleach solution (matching approved CDC levels) will be used on remaining areas, such as gates and handles.
- Individuals from different households must maintain a physical distance of 6 feet.
- Chairs will not be provided; however, individuals are welcome to bring their own chairs.
- Facility staff will be assigned to monitor gate and sanitize during sessions as needed in order to allow lifeguards to focus on monitoring the pool.
- Face masks will be provided for Water Safety Instructors, Lifeguards, and staff on the pool deck.
- There will be no lap or recreation swimming.
- Every effort will be made to minimize direct contact and face-to-face interactions.
- Face coverings will be removed when entering the water to perform a rescue.
- The extension or throwing of rescue tube or Shepherd’s Crook should be prioritized if rescue conditions permit.
- For rescues, a rear approach is recommended in order to minimize rescuer exposure to the victim’s face.
- CPR masks with disposable one-way valves will be used when CPR is necessary. Per American Red Cross standards, compressions will be prioritized over rescue breaths when a situation permits. A bag-valve-mask (BVM) will be used where practicable.
- Lifeguards will be trained in updated rescue and injury treatment procedures.
