    Special Covid-19 Information

    The safety and well-being of WML Aquatics students and instructors are of paramount importance and concern to us. Accordingly, each student and instructor is required before coming to each class to confirm as follows:
    1. He/she has neither (a) tested positive for COVID-19 in the preceding 14 days nor (b) been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the preceding 14 days; and
    2. He/she is not experiencing any of the following symptoms of COVID-19:
      • Cough
      • Fever or chills
      • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
      • Fatigue
      • Muscle or body aches
      • Headache
      • New loss of taste or smell
      • Sore throat
      • Congestion or runny nose
      • Nausea or vomiting
      • Diarrhea
    If any symptoms have been present within the preceding 24 hours or are manifest within 14 days afterward, that student or instructor will not be permitted to attend class and must immediately notify Laura Thompson at 917-940-7209.

    WML Aquatics will conduct classes in the manner prescribed by the American Red Cross, which has provided guidelines for proper hygiene and, wherever possible, social-distancing. Each student will be provided with the use of his or her own manikin and AED equipment for instruction. Instructors will be required to properly decontaminate all equipment between classes. However, the American Red Cross has stipulated that lifeguard training and instructor training cannot be conducted entirely with social-distancing, as would be obvious in any rescue-training scenario or instruction involving multiple students. Nevertheless, the New York State Department of Health has recognized that lifeguard training is vital to the safety of bathers in the state and has specifically authorized training to be conducted even though social-distancing is not always possible.

    BY REGISTERING FOR CLASSES WITH WML AQUATICS, YOU ARE ACCORDINGLY ACKNOWLEDGING THAT INSTRUCTION MAY INVOLVE CLOSE CONTACT WITH OTHERS WHO MAY BE INFECTED WITH COVID-19, AND YOU RELEASE AND DISCHARGE WML AQUATICS AND ITS OWNERS, PRINCIPALS, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS FROM ALL COVID-19-RELATED LIABILITY, CLAIMS, DAMAGES OR EXPENSES THAT MAY ARISE OR RESULT FROM MY PARTICIPATION IN ANY WML AQUATICS PROGRAMS OR ACTIVITIES.
