Health And Safety updated: 9/1/2020

This document is a summary of the safety standards and programming procedures that SwimAmerica-Davis Swim School has implemented since we officially reopened for swim lessons. These focus around social distancing, disinfecting and other preventative measures, such as face coverings.  It is subject to change based on updated information and recommendations from local, state, and federal authorities. 

FAQ's HEALTH & SAFETY UPDATE 2020

Personal protective equipment


  • Face masks will be worn by all staff.
  • Face coverings are required for adults and recommended for children over the age of 10
  • Face coverings should NOT be worn in the pool.
  • Face shields will be worn by swim instructors while in/around the pool.
  • Acrylic sneeze guards will be on the Front Desk counters.




Family changing room, showers, viewing area & FishBowl


  • We are counting on families to respect social distancing while in the lobby, on the pool deck and changing areas.
  • Please come dressed and ready to swim to reduce the number of people in the changing area before and after your lessons.
  • You will be assigned an individual changing area for you to store your belongings and change your child if needed.
  • Showers and changing room will be closed.
  • Please dry off, put your face covering back on and exit the building following your lesson.
  • Bring a minimal amount of personal items into the swim school.
  • The number of chairs in the viewing area have been reduced to allow social distancing.
  • Fishbowl is available to rent by the hour. Please email Rose@Swimamericadavis.com for more info.
  • Parents must remain in the building while they have a child in swim lessons.




Who can come to my childs swim lesson?


  • If a baby swims with one parent, can the other parent attend?
  • only one caregiver per child.
  • We currently have a “one caregiver per swimmer” policy, which is subject to change as restrictions loosen.
  • We understand there may be situations where two adults are needed. Please reach out to us regarding a solution.
  • My 2 kids swim one after the other. What do I do with them when they are not swimming?
    • Answer: The best way for our team to keep your family safe is to limit the number of people in the building at one time and limit the amount of time your family spends in the building. Therefore, only one caregiver may accompany a child into the building at a time. If you have a second child who swims after the first one, one parent/caregiver will need to wait in their car with the second child while the first one swims. The caregiver accompanying their children in their lessons will need to bring the first child out to the car after their lesson and switch their children out.
  • We understand that this may be an inconvenience for your family and we will work with you to schedule your swimmers to best suit your family.




New and continued cleaning procedures


  • Increased frequency of disinfecting all highly used surfaces such as countertops and door handles
  • Our professional cleaning crew will continue to clean our facility every morning before we open.
  • Our SwimAmerica staff will be sanitizing all high-traffic surfaces.
  • We have installed additional hand sanitizer stations throughout our building.




Do I have to wear a mask to enter your facility?


Per Yolo County guidelines, if you are over the age of 2, yes




New traffic flow within the building





Other procedures for a safer environment


  • Adjusted teaching techniques to practice proper distancing while maintaining safety.
  • We have marked socially distant boxes on our flooring with colorful tape and stickers for our swimmers when they line up to enter the pool.
  • We will be asking our families to please use their parent portal to book and pay for lessons and manage their accounts virtually. You and your family will be able to view skill level and class progress, mark yourselves absent, and update your credit card/direct debit authorizations! Of course, we will still offer our same booking process via the wonderful sales team at the front desk, but we want to give our families the option of managing their SwimAmerica experience from a distance!




Who are we offering lessons to right now?


At this time we are offering Infant/Toddler, Goldfish, Parent Led 3 Year Old, levels 5 through10, Stroke School, Adult lessons, Pods/Privates. We chose these classes because it is possible to teach these students while following social distancing guidelines. Our coaches will be wearing face coverings while on deck or face shields when in the water. We will be teaching up to 3 class per each 30-minute time slot, which will help us maintain 6 feet of separation in our building and in the water. We ask that our Infant/Toddler and Goldfish students come with only one caregiver each week. We may have additional instructions, in which case, we will send you detailed information as needed. ​




Is my child SAFE from COVID-19 in the pool?


  • According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), Covid-19 is not transmittable through properly-maintained pool water:
    • https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/parks-rec/aquatic-venues.html
  • We are addressing respiratory transmission of the virus by modifying our program to reflect social distance guidelines.




How are you keeping your staff safe?


  • We have adjusted our teaching techniques to include proper distancing and minimal touch while maintaing water safety.
  • Installed protective sneeze guards at our Front Desk.
  • Retail: Swim gear, such as goggles or happy nappys, will still be available for purchase on site or via our online store (accessed through your Active Carrot account). No drinks or snacks will be available at this time.
  • Signs posted about proper handwashing techniques. Staff will be required to wash hands before every shift and as needed throughout their shift.
  • We will be taking each staff member’s temperature before the start of every shift. We will send staff home if they have a temperature of 100F or higher.
