State-based Healthy Swimming Information
There is no evidence that COVID-19 can spread to people through the water used in pools, hot tubs, or water playgrounds. Proper operation and disinfection of pools, hot tubs, and water playgrounds should kill the virus that causes COVID-19. Limit close contact with people outside your home in public spaces, both in and out of the water. Get more information about COVID-19 and water.
Find state-specific information for both treated water (pools, waterparks, hot tubs/spas, water play areas, etc.) and untreated water (oceans, lakes, and rivers) on the pages below.
