If you’ve been asking yourself this question for the past couple of years, you’re not alone. That being said, it’s time to check the facts and uncover the truth about pools in the pandemic.
Let’s dive right in.
Covid-19 Is NOT A Waterborne Virus
As you may know, there’s truly nothing like taking a dip in a nice pool on a hot summer’s day!
After the Covid-19 pandemic swept the world, many people became quite out of touch with their love for the water. Well, that changes today!
As the Covid-19 virus is not considered to be “waterborne” by nature, it doesn’t live or spread throughout the water. That being said, the size of the pool can still be a great determining factor of how safe you and your family feel.
First Mobile Swim School contains larger indoor and outdoor pools to always keep the safety of our clients as the top priority.
