Continuing to test and balance your spa/pool water is essential in preventing the spread of other waterborne disease. As time goes on Circulating and Sanitizing your pool is essential to prevent unsanitary conditions which eventually could lead to other water born illnesses as well as EEE from mosquito Infestations. Please see the following information and guidelines set forth by the CDC concerning the use and treatment of hot tubs and pools during the pandemic.
From the PHTA (Pool and Hot Tub Association:
COVID-19 AND POOLS / HOT TUBS
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 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.
The World Health Organization states that controlling water quality is necessary to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases. PHTA has put together information on how essential it is for pools and hot tubs to be maintained. It is critical for the public to recognize that disinfectants used for pool and hot tub maintenance can also be used for surface disinfection and other means necessary during this time. Retail stores can be valuable outlets for chemicals that go beyond pools in maintaining public health.
PHTA strongly encourages commercial and residential pool and spa owners to follow the ANSI/APSP/ICC-11 2019 American National Standard for Water Quality in Public Pools and Spas.
