Hot Tub Safety Guidelines During COVID-19

During the COVID-10 pandemic, there are many changes that we have had to implement as a society. While there are many things that we cannot do safely for the foreseeable future, using your hot tub is not one of them.

In fact, continuing to use your outdoor hot tub is not only safe, but it can help to keep you in good health and safely spend time with family.

Here are some guidelines to follow to keep you and your family safe, while still having fun.

Keep it Within Your Family (or Bubble)

COVID-19 has not been shown to spread through water, especially when treated with spa chemicals and the water management system, but it is still in your best interests to only have people in your hot tub that you have been around throughout the pandemic.

Your family and/or your support bubble should be the only ones you are joining, especially in a hot tub.

Coronavirus can be asymptomatic, and the smaller space in a hot tub or spa could make it easy to spread the virus among people who have been exposed. But there’s no reason you and your closest loved ones can’t enjoy your hot tub or spa freely.

Disinfect Regularly

When planning to soak with your family or members of your bubble, there are a few extra precautions you can take that will create a clean environment and help stop the spread of the virus.

If people need to go inside, for example, if guests need to go into the house to use the bathroom, make sure there are extra supplies available for them to wash their hands thoroughly.

You may even think of having single-use supplies such as disinfecting wipes or paper towels for drying hands. Also, keep bottles of hand sanitizer readily available. It is also important to regularly disinfect surfaces that people are touching, such as doorknobs, sink handles, or the toilet.

You should also commit to ensuring that your hot tub is clean and properly treated. Adhere to a strict schedule of testing the water and treating with water care products regularly.
