In regards to hot tub use, officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say there is: “No evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.”

In fact, soaking in your hot tub will increase your body’s temperature which can help boost your immune system and stop the virus from reproducing.

The CDC has released guidance on COVID-19 and water transmission, including information on recreational water transmission.

If you swim at a public pool, you put yourself at risk of coming into contact with an infected person or a contaminated surface, just like you would at any other public facility.

CDC officials say this coronavirus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. It spreads between people who are in close contact (within about 6 feet) with one another and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, according to the CDC.

“These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs,” the website states.

And watch out for contaminated surfaces. It may also be possible for a person to get Covid-19 “by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes,” according to the CDC, “but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.”

Some larger pool venues have issued notices to patrons of closure, however, this is more to do with social distancing rather than problems of swimming in pool water itself.

Specifically, the CDC guidance states:

There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.
