Amid the growing concerns surrounding the spread and transmission of COVID-19 (or 2019 Coronavirus), [Our Bleach Vendor] would like to address the possibility of COVID-19 transmission in pools and spas.
According to the CDC, there is NO EVIDENCE that the COVID-19 virus can spread to humans through use of properly-disinfected pools and spas.
The CDC has released this official statement regarding COVID-19 transmission in pools and spas:
“There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs [spas] should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.”
Read the full CDC statement here.
This means that it is vital, especially now, to keep your pools properly disinfected at all times. It is safe to open your pool to patrons as long as the pool is maintained, disinfected, and in full functioning order.
Stay healthy and safe, and keep your pools disinfected!
