According to the Department of Homeland Security, “when the airborne virus at temperatures between 70 and 75 degrees is exposed to sunlight, its half-life decreases from around 60 minutes before exposure to 1.5 minutes after.”
Wet’n’Wild Waterworld undertakes rigorous hygiene standards, cleaning procedures and health and safety standards:
- Recently updated signage in accordance with guidelines regarding hand-washing and bather cleanliness
- On-site first-aid facilities with registered EMT’s with appropriate BBP practices in place
- An increased number of hygiene hand washing stations
- Conduct additional cleaning of rides and attractions including frequent disinfection of areas often contacted especially on high touch areas and shaded or indoor surfaces.
In addition to the above authority updates, we have received clarification from the CDC’s Waterborne Disease Prevention Branch, which states:
“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 removes or inactivates the virus that causes COVID-19.”
Wet’n’Wild Waterworld complies with these strict guidelines. We will continue to provide updates on this page and our social media.
