Guideline Safe Swimming in Corona Time, a summary

On May the 8th, 2020, several experts in the field of pool safety and infection control have come out with a new official guideline how to safely use swimming pools in times of the Corona Virus. The information in this Guideline is based partly on science, and partly on practical experience in running pol facilities. Therefore the guideline should be interpreted as such, not as a regulation. At the same time the guideline offers some clear instructions on which further local policies can be based.


The original guideline has been written by:

  • Dr. ir. Maarten Keuten, researcher Swimming Pools at the Technical University of Delft
  • Drs. Jan Bakker, clinical labor expert, Amsterdam Medical Centre
