The City of Toronto has reopened its 29 indoor pools at 25 per cent capacity.

The City of Toronto’s community centres, recreation centres, and indoor pools reopened on July 20 after being closed in March to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

As Toronto remains in Stage 2 of Ontario’s reopening plan, a total of 119 community and recreation centres, including 29 locations with indoor pools are open to the public for limited use. Indoor pools are reopened for drop-in lane and leisure swimming.

Capacity at indoor pools will also be reduced to 25 per cent, similar to outdoor pools, to ensure space for physical distancing. To give as many swimmers as possible the opportunity to cool off, swimmers will be limited to 45-minute sessions followed by enhanced cleaning.

Residents visiting community recreation centres should continue to follow Toronto Public Health’s advice to stay home when they are ill, wash hands often, practise physical distancing, and wear a face covering or mask in all indoor public spaces.
