PHYSICAL DISTANCE LESSONS AVAILABLE FOR UNVACCINATED STUDENTS
"REGULAR" LESSONS AVAILABLE FOR VACCINATED STUDENTS PUBLIC GROUP CLASSES SUSPENDED
At LifeCycle Swim School we’ve always prioritized the safety and well-being of students, guardians, staff and the community. To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 we’ve suspended public group classes until social distancing recommendations are relaxed, and we're confident that patrons and instructors will be safe. Private and "bubble" classes are available, and time slots are filling up fast.
It's reassuring to learn that, according to the CDC:
"There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools or hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g. with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.” For more information about COVID-19 and water transmission, please go to: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/water.html

What actions is LifeCycle Swim School taking to help stop the spread of COVID-19?
Pool infrastructure such as hand-railings and coping will be cleaned / disinfected by the instructor between students.
Swim equipment and toys will be cleaned / disinfected between students.
Hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes are provided at pool side for clients.
Do clients need to follow any "stop-the-spread" protocols before, during or after lessons? Yes. Clients should:

Are students/clients expected to show proof of vaccination? What about instructors? LifeCycle Swim School instructors are vaccinated, and will show clients vaccination cards upon request. We're not asking clients to show vaccination cards. We're depending on your open and honest communication about your vaccination status to help stop the spread of Covid-19.
