13 Mar ‼️Important update from the PWTAG regarding the transmission of COVID-19 through pools and hot tubs
PWTAG has consulted with Public Health England who have said: “We have checked with our national leads who confirm that coronavirus would be inactivated at the levels of chlorine used in swimming pools.” Several industry sources advise to only soak as long as you are properly maintaining and sanitising your pool or spa.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) situation is evolving and characteristics of the virus are still being determined. For everyone’s safety, PWTAG is urging the owners of pools and hot tubs to ensure frequent, regular, testing of the water for pH and sanisiter levels and to clean and disinfect touched objects and surfaces in the pool/spa environment.
