Covid 19 and swimming pools

Sac Pool Pros wants you to have the very latest information on using your pool while protecting you and your family from COVID-19. Researchers at The Centers for Disease Control or CDC have made the very latest information available. With pool season upon us, we all want to know if it's safe to go into our pools with our families. The short answer is yes. COVID-19 has been found to not be transferable in chlorinated water.

Because chlorine and bromine are used in recreational pools, the COVID-19 virus cannot survive. In addition to the CDC, Sac Pool Pros received information from World Health Organization, (WHO), as well as The United States National Institute of health, (NIH). We are doing our best to ensure that our staff as well as our beloved customers are well during this outbreak. Toward that end, we are doing everything we can to ensure a healthy workplace for our employees and customers. As well as bringing you information directly from trustworthy sources.

Thankfully, the pool and spa industry has not been overlooked in the COVID-19 research. Specific information has been geared toward our industry. In order to get a gauge of the exact CDC guidelines we have included the following link www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/water.html. This gives us all a great measure of assurance that using our pools this summer will be safe. Parents, here is some peace of mind as you plan for you, your family and your summer recreation and exercise.

We are glad to bring you the following direct guidance from the CDC:

"There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tub's. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (E.G. with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes Covid 19."

For more specific information, please follow the link to additional information from the Centers for Disease Control at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/water.html. In order for you to maintain your pool this season, we recommend that you follow the Centers for Disease Control recommendations which can be found at www.cdc.gov/healthywater/swimming/aquatics-professionals/operating-public-swimming-pools.html. These guidelines include the proper information for public pools as well. It's going to be a beautiful summer even amidst this outbreak.

The staff of Sac Pool Pros express their deepest condolences to those families who have lost loved ones during this outbreak. We join the nation and the world in sending warm thoughts your way. As we continue to experience the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, we will continue to bring you the latest information from the CDC as well as the other health organizations.

As we learn more about COVID-19 we are becoming empowered and wise to how to keep our employees and customers safe. As we continue to experience the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, we will continue to bring you the latest information from the CDC as well as the other health organizations.

Be safe and stay healthy as we continue to navigate through these uncharted waters together.
