Information Guidelines for Reopening BC’s Swimming Pools and Waterfronts  
COVID-19 Facility Operations: Recommendations for Progressive Reopening 
The COVID-19 pandemic has generated questions and concerns about potential exposure to the virus when aquatic facilities and waterfronts reopen. 
The objective of this document is to assist owners and operators of aquatic facilities to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission to employees and patrons when facilities reopen by providing guidance to facility operators and lifeguards at swimming pools and waterfronts. 
Owners and operators should also review Lifesaving Society Canada’s national standards providing additional operational details to assist swimming pool and waterfront operators.1 
These guidelines are based on expert opinion and evidence-based research from many credible health organizations throughout Canada and globally. Recommendations should be adapted to meet local conditions of the disease burden as well as resource availability. 
The Lifesaving Society continues to reassess the public health risk based on the best available evidence as the COVID-19 situation evolves. These recommendations will be updated as additional information becomes available.
