Waterpark Summer 2021 Process and Procedures
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has provided the following direction:
There is no evidence that the virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to people through the water in pools, hot tubs, spas, or water play areas. Proper operation and maintenance (including disinfection with chlorine..) should inactivate the virus in the water.
Why is Our Water Super-Safe?
- ALL our water is meticulously treated with chlorine as required by local and national health standards.
- PLUS: Our water is filtered through HUGE sand filters that meet or exceed national health standards.
- PLUS: Wild Island is one of the few waterparks in North America to circulate all our water through specialized UV light equipment to treat it for bacteria and viruses (such as COVID-19). UV light works by disrupting the DNA or RNA of the bacteria and viruses which in turn kills or inactivates them completely. We were way ahead of the curve when we installed this specialized equipment in 2010.
What Else Are We Doing to Keep Our Guests and Staff Safe?
In addition to making our water super-safe, Wild Island has developed a comprehensive plan to safely open and operate our waterpark. Some of the measures we are taking to provide a safe environment for our guests and staff include the following:
- Guests and employees who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to others with symptoms will be asked to stay home.
- Face masks will be optional for guests and employees who are fully vaccinated.
- Alcohol-based hand sanitizing stations have been placed throughout all areas of the waterpark. Signage has been added to remind employees and guests to frequently and rigorously wash their hands.
- Printed safety guidelines will be posted in high-visibility locations. The text of our safety guidelines for guests and employees is set forth at the bottom of this document. Guests will be informed that failure to follow all safety guidelines will result in removal from the waterpark without refund.
