Swimming Pool Return to Play Guidelines!
Our Parks and Recreation Department are grateful for the foresight of our provincial government to introduce the 2021 guidelines with extended time to prepare for the 2021 season. Here is the list of steps to the Re-Open plan.
1. Capacity: Capacity remains at max 100 if all can physically distance.
2. Masking: Masks are not required outdoors but are encouraged for instructors and coaches that are in contact with multiple groups for a sustained period of time. Masks are required when inside any other related pool buildings i.e. changerooms, guardroom, etc.
3. Swim Lessons/Swim Clubs: Multiple groups of eight to max 30. Groups of eight plus instructor (coach/manager). Visual distinctions between sections of the pool (ropes with buoys) allows for multiple groups to be in at once. Remember each group needs to be separated by five metres and allow for three metres of separation between each participant in the group. So you likely need a set of two ropes to ensure that five metres spacing is very distinctive and will not accidentally be crossed.
Step two of the Re-Opening will see all restrictions lifted from sport, which means by end of June these guidelines will no longer be in place.
4. Pool Rentals: The person booking must act as a Covid-19 safety person for the group and do screening and have a list for contact tracing. Their hope is to have some school classes come over in June for end of year swim days.
5. Spray/Splash Pads: Current capacity is 10 and will continue to follow outdoor gathering limits as things open up.
