If a customer requires the assistance of a support worker/aide, they must provide active supervision while in the facility. Support is defined as requiring personal care and assistance with mobility aids such as lifts and wheelchairs. One support worker/aide admission is included while supporting a customer in the pool or program. Admission charges will apply for additional support workers/aides.

As per Environmental Public Health regulations, all children 36 months and under are required to wear a swim diaper and waterproof pool pants to protect the water from accidental contaminations. We ask that all customers who require bladder and/or bowel protection to please use a swim diaper and rubber pants.

Healthy Swimming Principles

You can help us keep our pool clean of Recreational Water Illnesses (RWI’s) in a variety of different ways.

  • Have a hot soapy shower before entering the pool.
  • Ensure everyone uses the washroom before entering the pool and take them on regular washroom breaks during swimming.
  • Do not come to the pool when ill or have recently had diarrhea.
  • Do not eat close to swim time.
  • The Lifesaving Society identifies a potential low risk of infants ingesting pool water if breastfed in the pool. If the infant vomits in the water, it is a contamination and the pool must be shut down.
  • Ensure infants (age 36 months and under) and anyone with incontinence concerns wear both a swim diaper and rubber pants.
  • Change diapers in the change room, rather than on deck to prevent the spread of germs.
  • Let staff know immediately if a contamination is seen (vomit, fecal matter, etc.).
  • We adhere to the Alberta Public Health Act.
  • We submit weekly water samples to Alberta Health Services for testing.
  • We test the water daily.
  • We close and disinfect the facility and equipment when a contamination occurs.
  • We notify guests as soon as possible if a pool closure occurs due to contamination via our website.

Please check vecova.ca for the most current updates.

Recreational Water Illnesses (RWI’s) are illnesses caused by germs that contaminate bodies of water including swimming pools. RWI’s are introduced to the pool through 3 types of contamination: solid fecal, vomit and diarrhea.

 

Once contaminated the pool must be shut down for a sufficient length of time for our staff to disinfect change rooms, equipment and the pool itself. Shut down may take from one to 16 hours to allow the chlorine to disinfect the pool. These shutdowns affect the services we provide, and can result in the cancellation of programs, lessons and public swim times.

 

Thank you for helping us provide a safe and healthy environment for all to enjoy!
