In the light of COVID-19, we are taking many precautions and abiding by guidelines set forth by the Illinois Department of Public Health, Champaign-Urbana Public Health Department, University of Illinois, and the American Red Cross. Safety of our participants and staff has always been, and will remain our priority even through these challenging times. Some of the initiatives we are taking are listed below:

  • Reduced capacities (except for our private lessons)
  • Organized a 15+ minute gap between the end of one session and beginning the next
  • Any toys/equipment will be provided at a 1:1 ratio per participant
  • All swim instructors and staff will be wearing a double-layered lycra facial covering
  • Spectators will be stationed 6-8ft apart
  • Overall capacity of 50 or less within the pool area at all times
  • Advanced levels will be taught primarily from the deck (Level 4+)
  • Logistics for pool deck entry/exit will be organized by on-deck coordinator to limit patron/participant interaction
  • Locker rooms will be sanitized hourly by facilities staff; touch points within pool deck area will be sanitized between sessions
