Enjoying The Neighborhood Pool With Respect To Others
Whenever there is talk about going out for a swim, it’s not necessarily about exercise. Many adults and children head for the pool at the community center to socialize with other people that live in the Villas at Crestone Ridge. After all, having fun is a lot about meeting people and sharing some relaxed moments by the poolside.
Also, at the moment, the weather here in OKC is just right to lounge around by the poolside. Unfortunately, this is something many people are wary about now as almost everyone is social-distancing, and that has become the norm.
Is It Safe To Swim in a Community Pool During the Pandemic?
When you go to the swimming pool at Crestone Ridge, there are bound to be other people from the community there as well. So is it safe to have a dip in the swimming pool during the pandemic? This is a valid question and one that many are asking. After all, it isn't easy to keep children cooped up indoors for months on end. You must be yearning for a spot of fresh air in an open space apart from your yard as well.
When you were looking for new home construction in Oklahoma, you must have looked for a community that offered various amenities and facilities. A pool is one of the most sought-after features by families with kids, and many people now want to use the amenity.
The CDC says there’s no need to be concerned. There isn't any evidence that the COVID-19-causing virus can spread amongst people through the swimming pool, spa, or hot tub waters. Pools properly maintained & treated with bromine and chlorine should be effective enough at killing the coronavirus in the water, which is what experts are saying.
How to Stay Safe While Using the Community Pool
But if you want to use the pool in the new neighborhood Oklahoma, there are certain precautions you need to take and etiquettes you need to follow so you and everyone else using the pool are safe.
- Keep a safe distance between swimmers. Make sure that you and your kids aren't very close to other swimmers. Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from people in the pool and outside it.
- When you go out to the pool, if you find many people already in or around it, come back later so that there is no crowding by the water.
- While the water may be safe, you must protect yourself from others by practicing good hygiene when visiting the pool in the new Oklahoma City neighborhood.
- Bring your hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes and use these to clean all frequently touched surfaces, like railings and pool chairs.
Make sure the children aren't taking any undue risks by interacting very closely with other kids from the gated community.
Following these necessary precautionary measures is an excellent way to keep yourself and others at the pool safe while enjoying yourself. If you want to find a great neighborhood in OKC, don’t hesitate to call us at (405) 204-0678. We’ll be happy to answer all your questions.
