Pass the Air/Air Sharing
We have modified how we teach sharing air. The important steps of the skill remain the same, however no one will put someone else’s regulator in their mouth during training at Midwest Aquatics.
Bring Your Own Gear
Scuba students are required to bring their own mask, snorkel, fins, and boots. All of these items are included in our student packages.Additionally, we ask you to bring your own regulator mouthpiece.
Any yes within the last 14 days and we ask you to take care of yourself and stay home:
A fever, any cold or flu-like symptoms, travel outside the USA, or been in contact with anyone who has traveled outside the USA, close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
Enhanced sanitizing protocols are in place. All swim training aids and scuba rental/training gear is disinfected after each use. Frequent disinfecting of all commonly touched areas. Enhanced hourly and daily cleaning checklists.
The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.”
Anyone over the age of 6 (including employees) entering Midwest Aquatics will be required to wear a covering over their mouths and noses for so long as is recommended by state and local authorities. Thereafter, coverings will be optional.
Anyone who does not have something to cover their mouth and nose will have the opportunity to purchase a mask at the reception desk.
PLEASE NOTE: Children will not be allowed to wear any face covering while swimming for the safety of the child.
Water and HVAC
We sanitize our pool using sand filters and chlorination. Plus, our pool water is filtered several times a day. Our pool area is on its own, separate air handling and filtration system. We automatically monitor and manually check the chemical levels in our pool every 4 hours. The CDC states that proper operation of pools should inactivate the virus in the water.
We are practicing physical distancing within all areas of our store, maintaining 6 feet between each other.
Please wash your hands often. Soap and hand sanitizer are available throughout the building.
Staff Health Screening
All staff have their temperature checked and are screened for symptoms and risk factors.
