Indoor pools around Metro Vancouver are starting to re-open if they haven’t already.
Swimmers will be able to make reservations online on their desired cities website. Facilities will be sanitized frequently, especially between swim time slots. There will also be reduced capacity and lifeguards and all staff will be wearing PPE (face shields).
Depending on which pool you plan on visiting the rules and protocols will look differently at each one.
Most of them will ask guests to come dressed in their bathing suits since change rooms won’t be available. Lockers and shower usage might not be available either so make sure to check your pools guidelines before visiting. Each pool will be different.

There are lots that are waiting until October or November to reopen. Therefore, you will need to check with the city’s websites before visiting. There are no drop ins available, so you’ll need to register ahead of time.
