Public swimming pools to re-open on June 6

The Sports Bureau (ID) has announced that local swimming pools will re-open from June 6 with limitations on the number of people allowed and reduced opening schedules.

This year’s bathing season officially began on May 1, however public swimming pools have remained closed due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The ID now announced that residents wanting to go to public swimming pools will be required to follow the guidelines implemented by local health authorities in public spaces to prevent new Covid-19 cases, with users required to use masks, present the online health survey code and undergo body temperature checks before entering the facilities.

‘The number of users’ allowed access and the opening hours of the pools were also adjusted due to the reinforcement of cleaning and disinfection work,’ the ID added.

Concerning other sports facilities such as football and basketball fields, the ID only stated that it is closely monitoring the development of the pandemic with their re-opening to also follow Health Bureau recommendations.
