Due to the evolving novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, our operations have changed. We’re committed to our customers’ safety and health, and we’re more than happy to comply with local, state, and national guidelines. While we understand these changes represent an interruption to our services and products, we’re committed to doing our part in limiting the spread. As a result, we will be altering our operations to limit person-to-person contact.
As new information becomes available, our team will adjust our operational expectations and keep you up-to-date. Feel free to contact us with any questions. Be safe. We’re keeping those personally impacted by COVID-19 in our thoughts.
According to the CDC, there is no evidence that the virus that causes COVID-19 spreads through properly-maintained pool water. The CDC also believes that chlorine deactivates the virus. Read more here. Splash has always adhered to the CDC guidelines on pool chemistry and maintenance for the safety of our staff and students, and we closely monitor our water throughout the day. For additional safety and health of our pools, we also have UV-C water treatment systems at both schools.

While our office and deck staff will be wearing masks, the CDC recommends that instructors do not wear masks in the water. Face coverings are also not required per the health order for our students in their lessons. That said, we will be requiring our instructors to wear face shields when working with their swimmers in the pool. We also screen each employee before their shift with a COVID questionnaire, as well as take their temperature at entry.
As you know, the mask ordinance is still in effect. Everyone over the age of two must wear a mask inside the swim school, unless they are in the pool or noted otherwise.
Our HVAC system in the pool at both our schools will continue to bring in 100% outside air. We will also prop open doors when we can, safety and weather-depending.
