Is it safe to use pools and whirlpools?

According to the Centers for Disease Control (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. (external link)

In addition to consulting the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) findings, guidelines and recommendations, we remain in contact with our external Industrial Hygienist partner for the latest information. We expect this information will continue to evolve as more is learned about coronavirus and its impact

We continue to uphold our well-established, rigorous cleaning protocols at the club, including our Aquatics environments.

We test all of our pools and spas every 2 to 3 hours, typically above and beyond the frequency required by state health code, to ensure proper chlorination levels are maintained.

Life Time has invested in roof-mounted ventilation systems that are constantly pushing fresh (not filtered) air onto the pool deck. There is also another vent that releases the air back outside.
