Swim England has today (15.06.2020) published its comprehensive Returning to the Pool guidance.
The documents include robust recommendations ahead of the Government giving the green light for a return to the water following the Coronavirus pandemic.
Operators, Clubs, Swimmers and Coaches can now see how we will all have to adapt to a ‘new normal’ to ensure the safety of everyone visiting and working at pool facilities.
The guidance is based on the latest scientific advice and Government guidelines and will be regularly updated by Swim England to reflect any changes announced in the future.

Swim England Chief Executive Jane Nickerson said: “While the guidance contains vital information on how to reopen facilities, unfortunately it doesn’t include the key date on when pools can open.
“We will continue to lobby the Government for a reopening date but, ultimately, we have to be guided by them on this.
“However, it will not be a case of ‘business as usual’ and we know that things will have to be different.”
