Feeling under the weather before you go swimming?

A refreshing dip in the pool may seem like a good idea if you’re feeling unwell, but by going swimming when you or your children are suffering with an upset stomach, can potentially cause health risks for other swimmers and result in the pool being closed for a period of time, which can often lead to the cancellation of swimming lessons and weekend pool parties.

Although all our swimming pools are chlorinated and monitored on a daily basis, some bacteria can be initially resistant to chlorine and survive for a short time, particularly with illnesses such as diarrhoea, in fact the NHS UK website recommends that adults and children should avoid swimming pools for up to two weeks after suffering from diarrhoea.

It’s also important to ensure that you report to a member of staff immediately, should you or your child have an accident and vomit or experience diarrhoea while in the pool, as we need to act quickly to safeguard other users.

After an incident of illness in the pool there are strict health and safety guidelines which must be adhered to in order to protect the health of our customers, this means that the pool must be closed and thoroughly cleaned, which is unfortunately having an ever growing impact on our users, often resulting in staff being forced to cancel swimming lessons and even pool parties on the weekends.

To help protect the health of others and to ensure that everyone enjoys their experiences at our swimming pools, we would ask our customers to please avoid swimming if they or their children are unwell.
