    Social Distancing 101 for Swimmers: https://bit.ly/2WSci2l

  • So swimming is therefore safe in public pools because the chlorine kills the virus. What about flirting with girls on the pool deck? Since we have to keep a distance of 1 to 2 meters, we can only go to the pool to swim, but we can’t flirt/talk with girls? Am I supposed to wear a mask on the pool deck when talking to someone?

  • Well my swimming ans school and everything got cancelled cuz Ireland just went into shut down so I have nothing to do and I can’t train so this was helpful

  • My daughter is 8yrs old and takes swim lessons…the teachers are very close to the kids as they are training them to learn to swim…they talk to them constantly and show them proper form…so unfortunately my daughter won’t be swimming this summer…I was going to put the plastic face shields over her so when the trainer talk to her…her face is covered..but no…opting out is just better for now…better safe than sorry

  • Okay good to know that water does not contract or spread the virus do the handles lawn chairs and gate opening in apartment pools need to be disinfected or handled with gloves to keep the virus from spreading should signs be put up at sale only one swimmer at a time in the pool and others maintain 6ft Separation on the deck these are questions I have can you answer them thank you

  • Generally what you say is ok but that about not touching pets, and washing the hands after touching your own pet is just totally insane. where did you get that information? research better because there is no transmission between animal and owner.

  • Media grasping at straws on a failed narrative. Let people enjoy their lives. If you’re scared, stay in your basement, why do you want others to be as miserable as you are
