May 25, 2020 - Efforts to Open Pools Safely for Lap Swim
Since the start of Phase II reopening in California, Pacific Swimming Local Swimming Committee has been communicating how to open pools safely for lap swim to schools, cities, county, and state government and our public health officials. We know that we can conduct swim practices safely while following the necessary social distancing and sanitation requirements and have detailed plans in place for our pools. We are thrilled that one of our athletes in the Bay Area started a petition to help this effort and that the swimmers and families have supported her so enthusiastically. We hope that the governor and public health officials listen to our ongoing requests and allow the more than 40,000 swimmers in California to return to the pool by June 1st.
