The world starts to wake up little by little and more places are opening from a long quarantine. Since the CDC issued some new guidelines for the safety of those who operate, manage, and use public pools, hot tubs, and water playgrounds - pools and work out facilities are ready to reopen. People should wear face coverings when possible but it is not recommended to wear them in the water because of potential breathing problems. Also, it is important not to forget about personal hygiene, covering coughs, and sneezes. Social distancing is still a thing so crowds are to be avoided. Sharing objects - goggles, nose clips, and snorkels is not a good idea too.
SwimSwam made a really informative article about states re-opening amid COVID-19 pandemic, which will be updated constantly. We’re happy to share it with you.
Some of the pools will work at 50% capacity, some will be still closed with no certain date of reopening, most of them will be opened with a set of restrictions.
However, we do not encourage you to go to pools and work out facilities. Be very careful and take care of yourself. The battle is still going and we have to follow rules to win it.
