Sorry if this is a bit long..
I am a keen swimmer and recently rejoined my health club. They are being careful about sanitisation, we cannot use the showers except the one by the pool and I arrive in a towelling robe with my costume underneath and a mask on my face. Took a while to stop being embarrassed when I had to pass the golfers drinking on the terrace in order to access the club whilst looking like a Smurf!
The pool area is high ceilinged and has external doors on two sides which are open for ventilation. On my first session there were, imho, too many people and they were swimming laps rather than clockwise/anticlockwise as suggested in the divided halves of the pool. This meant that people were swimming towards me 1m or less away rather than the 3m distancing that should have happened if they had followed the rules.
I switched my time to the last session of the evening and usually have it to myself or with one other person using it regularly and we are on opposite sides of the pool.
The only thing that goes into the locker in the low ceiling changing room are my outdoor shoes, I towel off and put on my towelling robe by the pool so am really taking all precautions!
How worried should I be about suspended droplets in the air from previous swimmers? My husband is paranoid about all things Covid and it took a lot of persuading for him to "let" me out of the house to go swimming. I know he is unhappy about me going but I need my exercise and freedom!
Any advice from fellow swimmers?
