COVID-19 Guidelines

At SunBright Aquatics, the health and safety of our Instructors and Clients is our first priority. It is our commitment to do everything we can to ensure safe work practices at all times. During this unprecedented and constantly evolving condition of COVID-19, we have put together the following plan outlining our proactive steps that we are taking to ensure safety. We ask that you review and acknowledge the following regulations as confirmation of understanding and acceptance.

INSTRUCTOR & STUDENT CONTACT:

  • NON-CONTACT lessons will be provided by the Swim Instructor if students are able to swim on their own. In this case, the instructor will complete the lesson from outside the pool (or in the pool to demonstrate techniques) at a minimum 2-metre distance.
  • CONTACT Lessons: Physical distancing of 2 metres must be kept between the instructor and students
    at all times, except where necessary for teaching and instruction that cannot be effectively provided
    if physical distancing is maintained.
  • PARENT & TOT LESSONS will be available for students who need assistance in the water with the help of a household member (minimum 2 metre distance). In this case, the instructor will do a swim test at the beginning of the first lesson to ensure that the parent/guardian participating in the lesson is comfortable swimming in the water.
  • If a student cannot swim on their own, and the parent/guardian does not want to be in the water, the student will be required to wear a personal flotation device (PFD) that keeps them above the water during the duration of the lesson.

Please note: Swim instructors will be in contact with students if a first aid or emergency situation occurs.

USE OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT:

  • Swim instructors will wear gloves and a mask when possible during lessons (specific PPE to be used will be discussed and agreed upon between the client and instructor directly – if you have specific requests, please contact your swim instructor prior to your first lesson).
  • Instructors will ensure they have the correct PPE (mask and gloves) available in case a first aid or emergency situation presents itself.

EQUIPMENT:

  • We encourage clients to provide their own equipment for lessons including but not limited to the following: flutter boards, noodles, diving rings/jets, water toys.
  • In the case that the Swim Instructor’s equipment is used, instructors will thoroughly clean and disinfect equipment between lessons using antibacterial/germ killing cleaners.

COVID-19 SCREENING FORM:

  • Clients are required to fill out our Covid-19 daily screening form on behalf of their family members
    participating in lessons every morning they have lessons scheduled with SunBright Aquatics.
  • Instructors are required to fill out our Covid-19 daily screening form every morning they have
    lessons scheduled with SunBright Aquatics.

    someone who has COVID-19, the instructor will immediately cancel all lessons and re-schedule
