A note on safety to our FOSS families

Safety is our #1 priority and it’s always been core to our mission. We will continue to use the lens of safety for everyone as we navigate the new government guidance at a national, state and local level. 

Thank you for swimming with FOSS. It’s been wonderful to be in the pool and working together on swimming progress – and what fantastic progress we’ve been making! 

 If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Thank you for the continued support and partnership. 

See you at the pool! 

Safety protocols may vary by location, depending on local mandates. Please check with your local FOSS location for specific details.

Safer Families & Swimmers

Face coverings are strongly recommended for FOSS families

Due to the CDC’s updated guidance for areas of substantial and high transmission, we are strongly recommending face coverings for everyone in our facilities over the age of 2—including vaccinated individuals. This is subject to change as the CDC guidance evolves, and we will inform you by email of any changes to this policy, as well as update here on the website.

Swimmers are exempt from wearing face coverings while in the water, but we recommend that they wear face coverings as they pass through the facility. We ask that our Backfloat Baby parents wear face coverings in the pool.
