Communities and COVID Recovery: How to Adapt Your Aquatics With Secondary Sanitation


Back to Package

After many facilities were shut down during the COVID-19 pandemic, communities went on high alert from public health risks. Being closed over a Cryptosporidium outbreak or other Recreational Water Illnesses (RWIs) gathers more attention than ever. Aquatic facilities are installing secondary sanitation to reduce risk and protect swimmers while providing additional patron assurances. This session explores secondary and supplemental sanitation, as well as how taking measures to promote patron health and safety can help reassure, and thereby, rebuild communities that have been deeply scarred by COVID-19.


Learning Objectives
Following this session, learners will be able to:

  1. Understand why secondary sanitation is needed to reduce risk for swimmers and facilities.
  2. Why chlorine, on its own, is not adequate.
