Can COVID-19 Spread Via Swimming Pools?

The weather may be beautiful, and we’re all stuck at home. Thanks to the coronavirus that has some parents wondering about a trip to the pool.

With a lot still unknown about the coronavirus, there are concerns over if you can transmit it in water if swimmers get it in their mouths. Infectious Disease expert Dr. Anita Kourian in San Antonio says the answer is no pointing to the chemicals in pools. The chlorine is enough to kill it, and she says even infants in swim diapers are okay. But she says social distancing orders are still in place and that includes all pools and hot tubs too.
