I love swimming. The majority of my exercise came from swimming. Then I had foot issues and surgery. Then I got really sick in January. I was ready to get back into the pool when everything was suddenly shut down.
It looks as if the gyms in my area won’t be opening any time soon because they can’t open safely. The local pools can because of the way the virus is dissipated in the water. Plus chlorine levels kill it off.
Swimmers are generally bright people and we do understand that locker rooms are difficult to control. The discussion has been about swimming your laps, washing hands, throwing on a cover up, and going home to change. Not unreasonable.
There’s a petition going around asking for the pools to open, so we can get some exercise. I’ve attached it above.
