Baptist Health Shares Summer Swimming Precautions
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - As some public pools open for the summer, Baptist Health Paducah encourages people to continue to take precautions. 

In May, Governor Andy Beshear announced some public pools could open by this week, with protocols in place for the safety of swimmers and employees. 

Before taking a dive into a pool this summer, Baptist Health Paducah recommends taking precautions to make swimming as safe as possible. 

The Centers for Disease Control advises people wash their hands often, cover coughs and sneezes, wear a mask when possible and practice social distancing by staying at least 6 feet away from people you do not live with. Other tips from the CDC include: bring your own supplies - such as hand sanitizer - for proper hygiene, do not share personal objects such as goggles, nose clips and toys such as floats and if you are showing signs of the virus or any illness be sure to stay at home. These are necessary steps to lower the risk of spreading COVID-19 during the summer swim season.
