KASS Response to COVID-19

KASS Response to COVID-19

KASS would like to reassure our customers that you and your child/ren’s health and wellness remains our top priority.

All KASS lessons are and will continue to be delivered privately 1 on 1. Meaning there is only ever 1 instructor per child in the water with a maximum of 3 instructors and 3 children in the pool at any time adhering to the Governments recommendation of small groups/gatherings/events.

KASS are confident should all children and their careers implement hygiene procedures referenced below there is minimal risk of transmission.

Further the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention reports;

“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.”

Therefore all KASS facilities are currently open and fully operational but we’ve implemented a number of precautionary measures in response to the current situation, this includes;

  1. Hand sanitiser dispensers will be installed at entrances, bathrooms and change rooms
  2. Increased communication with our cleaning teams to ensure all pool and surrounds continue to be cleaned to a high standard.
    Continuing to maintain pool water quality at all times within regulations
  3. Water quality at all venues will be maintained in accordance with relevant health department regulations
  4. KASS will continue to encourage students, parents, family member and all visitors to refrain from attending lessons for 14 days if they have been overseas or feel sick.
  5. KASS ask all patrons to monitor the following resources for the latest advice and information;
    • World Health Organisation
