In a statement issued Thursday, the city says lessons will take place at certain aquatics locations starting July 6, with guidelines and health precautions including physical distancing and group size restrictions.
Modifications to the program include the schedule of swim programs, which are set to run for five consecutive days Monday through Friday, with a 30-minute lesson each day.
Swimming instructors will teach at a distance, and class ratios and the number of lessons taking place at the same time will be reduced to allow for physical distancing.
There will also be restrictions on the number of family or caregiver participants allowed for certain lessons.
The city says all swim programs previously scheduled for the summer months will be cancelled and a refund will be provided to participants.
Registration for the modified learn-to-swim lessons will be available beginning Thursday, July 2 at 8:30 a.m. online or by calling 519-661-5575.
The city says outdoor pools for recreational swimming remain closed at this time.
