 COVID-19: Modified Learn to Swim Program
The Canadian Red Cross Learn to Swim Program offered at the Cornwall Aquatic Centre have been modified to follow COVID-19 precautions and restrictions.  All Red Cross Swim lessons have been modified so that physical distancing will be maintained.
  • Modified Red Cross Swim Preschool Levels Starfish, Duck, Sea Turtle, Sea Otter, Salamander, Sunfish, Crocodile & Whale and school age Swim Kids Levels 1 to 4, require an adult be in the pool with the child. Typically, this is the instructor, however current protocols require Swim Instructors and Lifeguards maintain six feet of physical distance from participants except in cases of emergency.  It must be the same parent / guardian who participates or accompanies the child for all lessons and be comfortable in chest deep water.
