Frequently Asked Questions

What does my Health Department say about what’s required at my pool?

Each health department may establish rules as to what you can and cannot do. These rules vary from location to location
although in some cases, new requirements may not exist. Check with your local Health Department
and follow their rules or guidelines.

Will Social Distancing requirements will be in place for pools?

It is very likely that Social Distancing will be required when pools open. It is best to begin making plans now.

Do we need to limit the number of people who can use our facility at one time?

Yes. In order to maintain social distancing you need to establish the maximum number of people that can be in the pool facility while maintaining at least 6 ft. between family units or solo individuals. Your health department may establish this number for you.

Do we have to maintain Social Distancing while in the swimming pool?

Yes, it is expected that the same rules for Social Distancing will apply while in the pool water.  

Does the chlorine in pools prevent coronavirus from spreading in pools?

Yes. According to CDC and other authorities, normal levels of chlorine should disable the virus.

How much disinfecting must be done at our pool?

The current guidance from CDC is to disinfect high-touch surfaces frequently. “Frequently” has not yet been defined.

Can we just close our restrooms?

No, not unless the rules change. Most health department regulations require that swimming pools have operating restrooms.

What is the purpose of scheduling ‘blocks of pool time’, such as 2-hour windows, vs.  keeping the pool open to everyone all day?

Given the lowered occupancy limits needed at pools, scheduling blocks of pool time allows more people to use the pool each day while keeping safe social distance.

What is the purpose of limiting the number of people for each block of pool time?

Limiting the number of people allowed at any one time ensures the proper space exists for social distancing and gives your pool users peace of mind. It also allows you to comply with health department regulations, if required.

What’s an example of a daily pool schedule?

For a pool open from 10am to 8pm:
Time block 1)  10am - 11:30pm
Time block 2)  12pm - 1:30pm
Time block 3)  2pm - 3:30pm
Time block 4)  4pm - 5:30pm
Time block 5)  6pm - 7:30pm 
Time block 6)  8pm - 9pm  

If allowing 25 people in during each block of time, that’s 150 pool users per day, with 30 minutes of disinfecting between each block of pool time.

Why can’t we just schedule our blocks of pool time back to back?

A gap of time between pool usage is highly recommended to 1) Allow people to exit and enter while maintaining distancing and 2) Allow time for disinfecting high-touch surfaces.

Do we need signs at the pool related to COVID-19? What should be on our COVID-19 pool sign?

Your health department may or may not require this, but if your pool has new rules it’s best to post them.  A sign, in large letters that is posted in a prominent location may help reduce your liability, as well as educate your pool users. 

How can Liability Releases be accommodated with your Pool Scheduler?

When using our scheduler, you can require that a pool user 1) Open to read and 2) Agree to your liability release before completing a pool reservation
