Swim Guide is here to help you connect with water. For most people, that means delivering reliable, up-to-date information about your favourite swimming spots.
Here’s a summary of the new features and services in Swim Guide that explain how Covid-19 has affected your favourite beaches and swimming holes.
New beach pages alerts tell you if there is something you need to know about a beach. Our U.S. state pages tell you if there are beach closures and whether or not water is being monitored.
New region alerts tell you if there are regional advisories due to Covid-19, like a statewide alert. You can see a list of all regions in the footer of our home page.
When necessary, we issue announcements about things that may affect your access to the water. For example, we published special advisories on the July 1 and July 4th holidays. Follow our blog for special announcements.
Going outside and spending time with your local waterbody is a great way to care for your mental and physical health in these difficult times. That’s why we let you know which beaches you can go to, what you can do there, and how you can stay safe while you’re enjoying the water.
More and more of us are visiting our waters. We’re realizing how critical it is to keep our rivers, lakes, and oceans places where we can go to seek refuge, relaxation, and rejuvenation.
In the past few months, Swim Guide has been used by a record-breaking number of people, demonstrating how valuable the service is to millions of people just like you. Please continue to enjoy the service, and stay healthy.
