Hello CMSC members,
Due to the recent concerns of COVID-19 and in the interest in slowing the spread of infection, the Making Waves Swim meet for March 14th has been cancelled. We still do not know of the status for the Alberta & B.C. Provincials, but we will inform you once we have news.
With regards to COVID-19 and what CMSC & Repsol are doing, please see the message from the Execs below:
“Your executive obviously doesn’t know any more than you about the virus, but we urge all members to follow all recommended precautions. For the protection of all members, please do not come to practice if you show any of the symptoms or if you are under self-isolation for any reason.
The Centre for Disease Control has stated: “There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.” But of course, that doesn’t protect you from someone coughing on you in the hot tub, or from whatever surfaces you touch in the locker room.
Any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
