COVID-19 Safety Plan
The Aquatic Center has bleacher seating for more than 1,000. Face coverings are currently required by the facility. If they are still required at the time of the meet then all participants will be required to wear them except when behind the blocks and in the water. The locker rooms and facility are cleaned overnight. The bleachers, chairs and door handles are also cleaned after every session is finished for a meet. All attendees will enter from the front door. Anyone experiencing COVID-19-like symptoms must not compete or enter the facility.

All spectators and volunteers in the facility must have face coverings on at all times unless this mandate is lifted by the City of North Charleston. Any individual that refuses to have a face covering will be asked to leave the facility.

The competition pool has 20 lanes for warm-up. There are an extra 8 x 25 yard lanes in the therapy pool that may be utilized at certain times during the meet. A minimum of 10 x 25 yard lanes will be available for warm-down during the meet.

The main concession area will be closed. Participants should bring their own snack and drinks.

There are 4 main bleacher sections that seat 250 each. We also have 3 row bleachers on the opposite side of the pool. There are multiple rooms available off the deck for officials, coaches and timers meetings. There is plenty of space around the facility for those that would like to sit outside weather permitting.

Only one additional heat for individual events will be allowed to congregate behind the blocks. Relays will be seeded every other lane. The entire relay heat will leave the starting area before the next heat can line-up.

Attendees should notify the meet director should they test positive for COVID-19 within the 14 days following their attendance at the event. Depending on the specific details of the situation that arises the coach of record for the club that may have individuals impacted will be notified.
