    Watching television marathons of the show "Monk" should give you a glimpse into the folly of a lifetime waisted worrying about such nonsense.

    People BREATHE. 

    While the pool itself may be safe, there are many points of contact between you and people. So, remember the basic rule 6 feet plus, between you and others. No facial contact, no hugs, etc.

    covid is just a party-pooper!

    Just watched a news update were that was brought up.

    Apparently the virus can not be spread through sharing the same water, only through close contact with someone already infected.

    However in UK that is no longer an issue as all swimming pools have been closed down.

    I don't think so. They've closed all the Ys and other pools where I live. I think that's strange- I would think it would be the safest place to be.

    If the pool has the proper level of sanitizer in it. Then there's very little chance of contracting the virus from the pool itself or other people in the pool. Other people around the pool could carry it though.
