Since 19 July 2021 swimming pools and spas in England are, in theory, able to operate as they want. Like theatres, pubs and clubs, they are free to return to normal practice. The situation varies in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland where operators should consult the UK government website.
Accordingly, PWTAG has moved the many technical notes relating to Covid-19 – about closing and reopening pools etc – to the archive section. There is material in them that may well continue to be useful, as the pandemic is still with us. Let’s hope we don’t have to move them back into the active section.
To operators concerned about the safety and effectiveness of ‘normal practice’ this report makes reassuring reading.
