COVID-Safe and Secure
Safety is one of the core values of Kids Can Swim. Our appointed COVID-19 Safety Officer has put countless hours into developing our operations protocol in consultation with specialists to ensure the Kids Can Swim experience continues to be safe, high-quality and fun while reducing the chance for viral transmission.
Pools Are Open!
On June 08, Premier Doug Ford and the Ontario Government announced that pools could open once again and Kids Can Swim re-opened on July 4th. Now that Ottawa has entered Phase 3 of its reopening plan, we are following the Government of Ontario’s new published regulations.
These regulations state that any business that is open and provides in-person teaching or instruction must enable students to maintain a physical distance of at least two metre from any other person who is not in the same household as them except where necessary for teaching and instruction that cannot be effectively provided if physical distancing is maintained.
Since swimming lessons are a key life skill and by nature instructional, we can follow these new regulations. As always, the safety of your kids is paramount. To ensure that this new lesson format is safe for your kids and for our team members we have:
- Adapted our lesson plans to reduce the amount of physical contact between your kids and our AEs;
- Decided to continue only offering private and semi-private lessons;
- Properly configure our big pool to facilitate physical distancing and installed plastic barriers between lanes in the small pool.
We will also continue with all of our existing COVID-safety measures.
