Due to a member of the training group testing positive for COVID-19, Swimming Canada is temporarily closing its High Performance Centre – Ontario.
This precautionary measure is in line with Swimming Canada’s Return to Swimming protocols, as well as Government of Ontario and City of Toronto health and safety regulations.
Upon being informed that the member of the training group was experiencing symptoms, the person was immediately removed from the group, underwent a test that day and has been isolating. Protocols include strict monitoring of daily attendance, allowing all close contacts to be isolated. Testing of close contacts began within hours. As yet there is no evidence of transmission at the pool.
The centre will remain closed until further notice. Swimming Canada will continue to follow its Return to Swimming protocols, and adhere to all government and facility regulations.
