At AQUA Swim School, safety and health is our number one priority. You’re all  like family to us and we want to say thank you to those of you who choose AQUA Swim School as your home for swimming lessons and swim team. In these unprecedented times, we are working hard to keep our members, guests and staff safe and healthy. To that end, we wanted to share information about the steps we are taking to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We are also continually monitoring recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention and our state and local agencies in light of the public health issue of the Coronavirus.

What Actions Do We Take as an Organization? 

  • Asking all members who are not feeling to stay home
    1. “What if I miss my lessons? Will I get makeup lessons?” YES. Just let us know through an email to [email protected] and we will honor an unlimited number of makeup lessons to anyone who needs to stay home due to not feeling well.
  • Bleach & Sanitize Equipment

After each day, we bleach and sanitize the equipment that is used by instructors and swimmers in order to keep our equipment germ free and usable for everyone.

  • Disinfect Facility Everyday

Numerous times per day, a staff member will go around and spray all the chairs, tables, bathrooms, and changing rooms with disinfectant spray.

  • Deep cleans the facility when opening and closing every day
  • Wash Hands

We REQUIRE all staff and members to wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds with soap.

  • Prevent hand touching with customers  – NO high fives to children
  1. Staff stays home if not feeling well

If a staff member is sick or not feeling well, we require them to stay home

What can you do as preventive care –

  • Wash Hands

Hand-washing is your best self-defense against the spread of germs. Hand sanitizer is also located throughout the facility as a backup.

  1. Stay Home if Not Feeling Well
    If you or your child is not feeling well please stay home. This prevents the spread of any illnesses. We can always schedule a makeup!
  • “What if I miss my lessons? Will I get makeup lessons?” YES. Just let us know through an email to [email protected] and we will honor an unlimited number of makeup lessons to anyone who needs to stay home due to not feeling well.
  • Be Vigilant

If you have traveled to any of the countries where there are outbreaks of the virus, please follow the guidance on the CDC website.

We are closely monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). We will update you as new information becomes available and take guidance from public health officials

We are committed to making AQUA Swim School as safe as possible for you and your families. We are dedicated to water safety and to make that possible, we are taking every step to prevent the virus from spreading here. Thank you for being a part of the AQUA Family! #justkeepswimming

SOME POSITIVE for all of our swimmers – A point of positivity from a swimmer’s perspective at least is that Ireland’s Health Service Executive, essentially the equivalent of the Department of Health & Human Services in the United States, confirms that coronavirus cannot be transmitted in drinking water and swimming pools, provided these mediums are properly chlorinated.
