We understand your concerns,, so we decided to share with you an update about the prevention of coronavirus spread in our centre.
Public Health England confirmed with Leisure Centres that coronavirus would be inactivated at the levels of chlorine used in swimming pools.
For everyone’s safety, Chesterton Sports Centre continues with the following procedures, which is the latest advice:
Frequent, regular, testing of the pool water for pH and disinfectant levels.
That pH and disinfectant levels comply with PWTAG guidance in the Code of Practice.
Monthly bacteriological tests of pool water are carried out by an UKAS approved laboratory.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the pool environment, ensuring a frequent and regular cleansing regime of all areas used by the public.
Users of swimming pools are strongly advised to shower before and after entering the pool to remove impurities typically found on bodies. They also are directed to observe good public hygiene practices. Swimmers who are unwell should be discouraged from using the pool.
Thank you for your understanding,
