Dear ASC Families, 


We now are learning to live with COVID as an endemic, and we certainly know more about it now than we did 2 years ago. 

The CDC, the CDH, and LACHD have all agreed that it may be safe and beneficial to move away from wearing masks, but recommend those at risk continue to wear them.  As you know by now, the State of California and LA County Department of Public Health have shifted guidance in the mask mandate, announcing indoor masking is no longer mandatory, but is strongly recommended, and our local school districts are lifting the mask mandate for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals on March 12th.

Over the past 2 years at Academy Swim Club, there have been no COVID clusters or known passing of COVID during any of our lessons. After careful consideration and to align with the LA County Department of Public Health, we have determined that mask wearing will be a decision that our members will be free to determine for themselves what is best for their family.

We know there are currently many different opinions about continuing masking. However, some families may have very good reasons to continue to mask, so we are asking for you to be kind and respectful of everyone’s choice to mask, or unmask, and remain respectfully distant from those who choose to still mask. The back section of the viewing area at Valencia & Newhall (the former child play areas) may be used to help with distancing.  We encourage all to extend love and respect to others in their decisions, and we all want to continue to keep our families safe.

Instructors will continue using their shields at least for the next month, and will continue to keep them poolside and use them upon request of parents or guardians thereafter. 

Masks will become “optional”; however, KINDNESS is REQUIRED.  This will take effect on Saturday, March 12.

We know that Covid-19 protocols are continually changing, and we will continue to be transparent and adaptive as things move forward. 

We look forward to seeing many happy, smiling faces in the coming weeks!

Nikki Miller

President, Academy Swim Club
