Covid-19

Following UK Government guidance, Hook and Ewshot swimming pools are currently closed due to Covid-19.

We are in the process of reviewing Government guidance regarding the re-opening of pools and also from other industry related organisations such as Swim England/STA.  This is to ensure that when we do open again, we operate a safe and fun swimming teaching environment that you have come to expect from The Little Swim Club with the health and safety of your family and our staff as our top priority.

Coronavirus - Advisory notice

Following concerns about the Coronavirus and advice we have sought, we are asking families to avoid coming to The Little Swim Club if you or your child are feeling unwell.

Currently the UK Chief Medical Officers have raised the risk to the public from low to moderate. But the risk to individuals remains low.

Please seek medical advice or look at the Public Health England website at:

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public for more information and advice
 

We would like to reassure you that we are following the advice and guidance from Public Health England and the Department of Education regarding best practice with cleanliness and sanitation and we are installing anti-bacterial sanitisers at the entrances to our pools.  We would appreciate it if you would your help us by talking to your children about basic hygiene procedures without alarming them, and remind them to wash their hands properly.

Public Health England and the DFE have provided comprehensive guidance for educational settings and a helpful extract from their website follows:-

Preventing The Spread of Infection

There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus.

There are general principles anyone can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • washing your hands often - with soap and water, or use alcohol sanitiser if handwashing facilities are not available. This is particularly important after taking public transport

  • covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in a bin. See Catch it, Bin it, Kill it

  • people who feel unwell should stay at home and should not attend work or any education or childcare setting

  • pupils, students, staff and visitors should wash their hands:

    • before leaving home

    • on arrival at school

    • after using the toilet

    • after breaks and sporting activities

    • before food preparation

    • before eating any food, including snacks

    • before leaving school

  • use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available

  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

  • avoid close contact with people who are unwell

  • clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

  • if you are worried about your symptoms or those of a child or colleague, please call NHS 111. Do not go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment.
