Swimming enthusiasts have a lot to celebrate this upcoming Friday.
All indoor pools are permitted to re-open with strict COVID-19 restrictions in place. Only recreational swimming with family members from the same household is allowed. Solo training and private lessons have also been given the go-ahead.
“It definitely seems there is a lot of interest and a lot of enthusiasm for getting back into the pool,” Adam Di Fulvio, the CEO of The Montreal Institute of Swimming, told Global News.

Limited use of the locker rooms and capacity limitations are also in place.
“Last I checked it was seven square meters per individual. So if you have a fifty square meter pool, you’re allowed a maximum of seven people,” Di Fulvio said.
