COVID-19 and the swimming community

COVID-19 and the swimming community


We are in Alert Level 1.

We are back to the new normal at Alert Level 1 and most importantly, we get to jump back into the pool! Although social distancing is a thing of the past and gatherings have no restrictions, we must make sure we stick to good levels of hygiene and contact tracing.

The Swimming NZ team and board are monitoring the developments and will update this page continually. Information is being sourced from many different authorities including the Government, Ministry of Health, High Performance Sport NZ, Sport NZ and of course our own medical advisers.

Please see below some important information from the World Health Organisation (WHO) on how the COVID-19 virus spreads and how we can reduce the risk of infection.
