It’s time to make a splash again! Swimming schools have been given the go-ahead to re-open after what probably was the longest Winter of their lives. With some change to the swimming lessons, schools are eager to welcome swimmers back. Click on a swim school below for details.

“There is no evidence that Covid-19 can spread to humans through the use of pools as the chlorine kills the virus that causes Covid-19. A younger child has got a higher risk of drowning than dying of Covid-19” (CDC)

Covid-19 Compliant Swimming Schools In Gauteng

For parents in Gauteng, find comfort knowing that the swimming schools listed below are compliant with Covid-19 regulations. This means that:

  • social distancing measures are in place, in the water and out
  • instructors will wear masks or visors in pool; and parents assisting swimmers in water.
  • change rooms are sanitised, although swimmers are encouraged to change before arriving and in the car after class
  • intervals between classes will avoid congregating and allow for sanitising
  • where possible, the entrance and exit points are different. 
  • the school will offer smaller classes.
  • non-swimmers, or on-lookers are limited.
  • screening will be conducted at the entrance (i.e a questionnaire and risk survey)

Of course, each facility is different, but the compliance ensures that the regulations are still met. Further, the new norm of masking, sanitising and social distancing applies to everybody visiting the school, for the safety of all.
