We are following the guidelines given to us by the Department of Health and here are some things you need to know before arriving.

1.Locker rooms- Participants should arrive dressed to swim due to the restricted use of the locker rooms.

2. Spectator Stands- Due to limited capacity, youth will need to be dropped off outside pool door #16 and picked up outside pool door #15. We encourage parents/guardians to remain in our vehicles with your youth until a staff member comes to tell swimmers they can come into the building. Swimmers that arrive early and exit their vehicle will need to stand on a white tiger paw located on the sidewalk and wait for a staff member. This will allow us to clear the pool area before allowing the next group of lessons into the building.

3. Pool Staff- Pool staff will remain on deck and wear a face mask while teaching. If at any time a rescue is necessary, the pool staff will immediately initiate and follow the existing EAP (Emergency Action Plan)

4. Self-screening- Prior to coming to your lesson please ask the following:

In the past 24 hours, have you or anyone in your immediate family had the following symptoms:

o A fever (100.4 or higher) within the last 72 hours

o A cough or sore throat

o Shortness of breath

o Chills

o Repeated shaking with chills

o Muscle pain

o Headache

o New loss of taste or smell

o Had direct household contact with a person experiencing undiagnosed symptoms

o Diarrhea, vomiting or nausea in the last 24 hours

If ‘yes’ to any of the above, the individual should be sent home/not attend the program.

5. For sessions 5 & 6 (July 13-July 23), 7 & 8 (July 27_Aug 6): Youth enrolled in Aqua Kids, Bobbers 1 & 2, Level 1 & 2, and Adaptive swim lessons will need an adult in the pool with them (ratio of 1:1 swimmers to adults).

If any of these guidelines cause an issue for your family please contact the community Education Office at 651-460-3200 or email Brittany Hoppe at bhoppe@farmington.k12.mn.us
