CDC: Coronavirus Unlikely To Spread In Swimming Pool Water

If you're going to a public pool this summer, here's the deal: the water is fine, it's the area around the pool itself that's a concern.

The CDC says proper maintenance and disinfection with chlorine and bromine “should inactivate the virus in the water.”

Even though the water itself may be safe, CDC officials urge all swimmers to protect themselves from others at the pool by maintaining physical distances (at least six feet apart) and hand washing after coming in contact with high-touch areas.

It's also advised to bring your own disinfectant wipes to clean off public pool chairs before your family uses them.

If you're going to a public pool, stay safe!
