COVID-19 safety precautions in the water park

SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, most commonly spreads from person to person by respiratory droplets during close physical contact (within 6 feet or a few inches longer than a typical pool noodle, both in and out of the water).
The virus can sometimes spread from person to person by tiny droplets or virus particles that linger in the air for minutes to hours. This can happen most easily in enclosed spaces with inadequate ventilation. In general, being outdoors and in spaces with good ventilation reduces the risk of exposure to infectious respiratory droplets. Infected people with or without symptoms can spread the virus. The virus spreads less commonly when a person touches an object or surface that has the virus on it and then touches his or her mouth, nose, or eyes.The virus can sometimes spread from person to person by tiny droplets or virus particles that linger in the air for minutes to hours.

Fortunately, there are several actions pool, hot tubs, and water playground operators can take to help lower the risk of spreading the virus among persons at aquatic venues.
There is no scientific report of the virus being spread to people through the water in pools, hot tubs, water playgrounds, or other treated aquatic venues. However, it's still important for both visitors and staff at pools and water parks to take precautions to keep people safe. Though the CDC doesn't believe COVID-19 can spread through water, the virus can spread on other surfaces.
We recommend visitors take the following precautions:
  • Wear a cloth face covering when out of the water
  • Avoid sharing items like goggles, snorkels, and towels, which can be difficult to clean between uses
  • Social distance from others not in your group while in and out of the water
  • Urge people to stay home if they are sick
  • Promote safe practices such as wearing facemasks when out of the water, hand washing, etc.
  • Keep supplies such as soap, hand sanitizer, and paper towels stocked
  • Keep supplies such as soap, hand sanitizer, and paper towels stocked
  • Remind people to avoid sharing personal items
  • Increase airflow by opening doors and windows for inside locations
  • Consider limiting the number of visitors to allow for social distancing
  • Change deck layouts to ensure people can social distance
  • Limit large group events
  • Create a plan in case a staff member or visitor gets sick
  • Use signs, posters, and make announcements to remind people of healthy behaviors.
  • The number of people who can stay in the pool at a time should be minimized
