Covid-19 Updates | USA Swimming Releases Facility Re-Opening Messaging & Planning

Dear Coaches, Swim Teams, Swim Clubs and Swim Schools,

As Malaysia prepares to reopen businesses and facilities, it's important for us to adhere to the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and guidelines set by the Malaysian Health Ministry for everyone's health and safety.

USA Swimming Releases Guidelines on Reopening Facilities

⚠️ The guidelines, of course, are contingent on following local, state and federal public health guidelines.

 

The first recommendation made by USA Swimming is that each club designates a COVID-19 liaison that is “responsible for staying up to date on community and state recommendations and any associated changes.”

The document follows by outlining how to mitigate hazards, utilizing safe practices, communication with athletes and families, and programmatic considerations. It also outlines general practices for athletes to follow before, during and after practice, including leaving the facility “as soon as reasonably possible after practice,” including showering at home.

At the bottom of the document, there are four sample pool diagrams showing starting and ending points in sets that keep the athletes socially distant. It shows how to do so with 12, 18 and 27 swimmers in a six-lane, 25-yard pool, and 60 swimmers in a 10-lane, 50-meter pool. Finally, it shows a sample of how to have a group of swimmers assemble on deck prior/after a workout, remaining six feet apart.
