Personal Protective Equipment Policy
All team members must wear face shields when in the Kids Can Swim centre (both in-water and in the facility). This includes, but is not limited, to Aquatic Educators, Front Desk Coordinators, and On-Deck Supervisors.
Swimmers and Guardians
Guests (both swimmers and guardians) must wear a face mask when in the centre except for when they are in the water. Guests will be asked to take their mask off in the water because:
- The Aquatic Educator will be wearing a face shield. In accordance with physical distancing measures other guests will be at a distance of 2 meters or more away from each other.
- The CDC has stated that “There is no evidence that the virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to people through the water in pools, hot tubs, or water playgrounds.”
Guests must bring their own masks to wear upon entering our centre. Kids Can Swim has the right to refuse access to guests who do not bring a mask to their lesson.
It is not recommended for children under the age of 2 to wear a mask, according to the Centre for Disease Control.
