What's changed and what's remained the same? Looking at where we are in aquatics 30-days later.  

Katie Crysdale
Katie has 18 years of experience in progressive leadership roles (lifeguard, pool operator, programmer, facility manager) in the aquatic industry. In 2017, Katie founded Lakeview Aquatic Consultants Ltd. to provide training, consulting and mentoring to clients across Canada and around the world.

When she's not sharing her passion for healthy water and reducing water-related injuries, Katie can be found hiking up big mountains, reading books on topics ranging from North Korea to whaling, traveling to new places, and eating delicious food.

CDC has updated two guidance documents on closing and reopening aquatic facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Extended Hot Tub/Spa Closures (Center for Disease Control **UPDATED**)
Updated to address aquatics sector feedback related to hot tubs/spas with a plastered finish, which could end up cracking if drained for a prolonged period of time. 

Guidance for Building Water Systems (Center for Disease Control **UPDATED**) Updated to clarify that not every public hot tub/spa needs to be tested for Legionella before reopening.
