Coronavirus FAQs

Swim121 are following advice, guidance and recommendations set by the Government, Swim England and the PWTAG. Those bodies will influence how we answer some of your questions.

Should I or my teacher be wearing face masks?

Our clients do NOT need to wear face masks when swimming, as these may reduce the ability to breathe comfortably.

When the mask/covering becomes wet it makes it difficult to breathe and promotes the growth of microorganisms. The most important preventative measure during exercise is to maintain physical distance.

Swim121 have provided all staff with FaceVisors for our teaching team to wear, and face masks when dry side - reception and veiwing areas. 

We are also asking adult spectators to wear a face mask whilst in the poolside viewing area or the reception cabin.

How has Swim121 adapted to the Coronavirus outbreak?

We have adapted our way of working to deal with the challenges presented by Coronavirus (COVID-19), including

  • Updating our facilities to make public viewing areas larger, and we have redesigned the layout of the changing rooms to give more space.
  • Our staff have attended training sessions regarding teaching practices and were involved in the creation and agreement of the risk assessment associated to Covid-19.
  • We initially invited all our current clients for a free family swim to ensure our clients were comfortable with the new changes and expectations.
  • We expect our swimmers to come to their session swim ready!
  • On arrival our receptionist will take temperature checks (non contact) and show you to the arrival waiting area.
  • There will be no showers available at this time to speed up the changing times.
  • Staff will be wearing face masks and ‘enhanced cleaning’ will take place.
  • There is also hand sanitizer placed in the public viewing area and reception.
