CDC Advisories for Swimming Pools
With limited pools opening this month, the CDC has published a
list of considerations for individuals while at a public pool:
- Wash your hands often
- Cover your mouth when sneezing or coughing
- Wear a face covering when out of the water
- Bring your own hand sanitizer and tissues
- Stay home if you exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19
Thank you for Wearing a Mask!
The CDC has concluded from recent studies that a large number of individuals with the coronavirus who do not have symptoms can transmit the virus to others – especially when interacting in close proximity to one another. Because of these studies, the CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public places like grocery stores and doctors’ offices.
While the CDC continues to study the spread and effects of coronavirus, we ask patients to continue wearing masks to protect our patients and our staff.
