Hong Kong Pools Open As Covid-19 Eases

When people think of Hong Kong, shopping or dim sum might come to mind, but swimming probably not. Yet, this city is loaded with scenic pools, including the world’s highest pool on top of a skyscraper, a natural infinity pond on a mountaintop and plenty of public water parks.

In addition to being a fun and healthy activity for the whole family, it’s also a way to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. So, when the temperature starts to rise, there’s no better way to cool off than a quick dip in one of these hongkong pools.

The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) has announced that all government-managed pools will reopen on Thursday as the fifth wave of Covid-19 infections begins to ease. However, it has warned that swimming at beaches without lifeguards is still not recommended. The city’s 38 public pools will be open for three sessions: from 6:30am-12:00pm, 1:00-6:00pm and 7:00-10:00pm. Lockers will be available, but bring a HK$5 coin to use them.

In the meantime, many swimmers will be heading to the city’s dozens of private pools. They’re cheaper and offer a variety of amenities, from water slides to hot tubs. And with the number of cases of infection dwindling, they’re sure to be a popular choice for locals and visitors alike.

Despite the announcement, some pools will remain closed until at least Friday. That’s because only 40 per cent of the city’s 600 seasonal lifeguards have reported for duty. The LCSD says it will take “time and patience” to find enough personnel to resume full operations at pools and beaches.

Meanwhile, union representatives have urged the LCSD to allow schools and training centres to use public pools even if there’s no lifeguard present, so long as they ensure that a qualified instructor is on hand to supervise the children. The move could help keep swimming classes running this summer.
