    Coronavirus (COVID-19)

    URGENT Coronavirus (COVID-19) UPDATE

    To all parents and guardians,

    You will all be aware of recent government guidance concerning the current Coronavirus pandemic. The government has not, as yet, instigated any mandated closures or ‘lock downs’. Schools are being kept open, along with leisure facilities across the country.

    The Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group (PWTAG) has advised Swim England that the Coronavirus is inactivated by the current chlorine levels in swimming pools. Whilst the pools remain open, and like Swim England, we do not see any reason why we cannot continue with our training programme.

    Your children will be mixing with other children and some adults at the swimming pool, as they do each day at school, however I understand that GLL have closed the Steam Room and Sauna at Thornton Heath therefore there will be less adults around in the changing area. If you are concerned about your child(ren) being in the changing area with others then please ask them to use the changing cubicles that are available.

    We are all continually listening out for guidance from Public Health England, the government and the Leisure Centre operator (GLL) and currently none of this guidance leads us to suspend teaching / squad swimming sessions.

    There is a hand sanitise dispenser outside the changing village at Thornton Heath. Therefore, can we please remind everyone that hand hygiene is paramount at all times.

    Thank you for your co-operation in this difficult time.
