SHARING A LANE IN PHASE 2
Always leave space at the wall when resting
Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming!
Beginning July 13, we will start allowing two members per lane.
Each swimmer has ½ of a lane. You can continuously swim without stopping in your side of the lane, including when the other swimmer is resting at the wall.
However, if you need to rest and the other swimmer is resting or transitioning from the pool, please rest at the 12’ distance marked by the flags above the lane lines until they leave the wall. Two swimmers should not congregate at the wall and we want appropriate social distancing while standing in the pool.
We have placed markers on the lane lines to give appropriate distancing markers if you would like to rest or exit the pool when another swimmer is resting at the shallow end wall.
Updates in real time! – 7/14/20
- Swimmers are welcome to rest on opposite sides of the pool if they are able.
- Please be sure to wait to enter the pool until your lane partner is aware that you are entering the pool to avoid collisions.
Social distancing is an important part of this phase of reopening. Based on guidelines from the State of CT and USA Swimming, we can safely offer lap swimming for up to two people per lane for non-competitive lap swimming.
According to the CDC, there is no evidence that COVID-19 can spread to people through recreational water. However, it is important to limit close contact with people outside of your home when visiting public pools, hot tubs, and water playgrounds, as well as natural bodies of water—like beaches and lakes—to slow the spread of COVID-19.
