OPENING OF SWIMMING POOL FACILITIES
Before the change to the rules was confirmed, Prof Deenan Pillay, from University College London, told the BBC:
"Given the amount of chlorine that is in swimming pools, viruses are not going to survive there. So it's not the actual swimming that's the risk, but it is all the other stuff that goes with it - the changing rooms, getting in and out of the pool and the risk of shared showers."
(The above statement appeared on the BBC News App "When can I go to the gym again and can I go swimming?")
The most important issue for our team is the health and wellbeing of our guests. We are very aware that our guests (especially children) are very much looking forward to going swimming. Unfortunately, like most activities during the pandemic we are unable to 'open as usual'.
We would therefore ask ALL guests to PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING and STRICTLY ADHERE TO these new rules which we have put in place for your safety:
1. Our Pool & Games room is now open to our guests
2. All guests should shower in your own cottage IMMEDIATELY PRIOR to using the swimming pool
3. You Must Change for the pool in your own cottage. Please bring a bathrobe etc to wear to walk to the pool. This can be left by the pool side.
4. We ask that ALL guests bring appropriate footwear to wear specifically in the swimming pool building eg. Flipflops, slippers etc. Please change your footwear immediately outside the pool building (it's a covered area). Wear your pool footwear ONLY inside the pool building.
5. Please use wall mounted hand sanitisers immediately outside the swimming pool building. In addition please use the sprays and kitchen roll provided to clean door handles when you exit the pool building.
6. All standard rules for the swimming pool apply, please refer to our T&Cs.
7. Specifically NO MEMBER OF HADDON GROVE STAFF OR LIFE GUARD WILL BE ON DUTY AT ANY TIME. CHILDREN MUST BE SUPERVISED AT ALL TIMES BY A PARENT. NO ONE SHOULD EVER USE THE POOL ALONE.
8. The revised opening times are: 8am to 8pm
9. We are introducing ONE HOUR sessions per cottage, with a sign-up board available each morning outside the pool
10. Each session should be no more than 45 minutes in the pool, allowing you to leave prior to the next session starting.
11. Our pool cover will remain open permanently, please do not touch the cover. (As the cover is thermal protective, this may result in heat loss from the pool).
12. The swimming pool will be closed on WEDNESDAYS (If required) to allow for essential cleaning/maintenance.
13. We reserve the right to CLOSE or MODIFY the operating hours for our swimming pool.
14. THE GAMES ROOM is open
Please be aware that all risks associated with swimming pools cannot be eliminated. You are therefore using our pool facility with the knowledge that risks do remain.
