With all of the concerns surrounding Covid-19, you may be wondering how safe swimming pools are. According to the website of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), “There is no evidence that the virus that causes Covid-19 can be spread to people through water in pools, hot tubs or spas.”
The CDC goes on further to say that, “Proper operation and maintenance, including disinfection with chlorine and bromine, should inactivate the virus in the water.” If you would like help from trusted pool cleaning professionals to ensure that your pool is clean and your pool water is properly adjusted, SE Pool Supply & Chemical would be happy to help.
For your added safety, the CDC also says, “While there is the ongoing community spread of the virus that causes Covid-19, it is important to take steps to ensure health and safety.” The particular steps that the CDC suggests should be taken by pool owners for pool users are as follows:
- Keep frequently touched surfaces around your pool – including ladders, slides, seating and tables around your pool and all pool accessories – clean and disinfected.
- Additionally, pool goers should avoid sharing swim gear, such as goggles and snorkels, with people outside of your home.
