According to the CDC “There is no evidence that the virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to people through the water in pools, hot tubs, spas, or water play areas,” the federal agency states, noting that “Proper operation and maintenance of these facilities should inactivate the virus in the water.” 

We have always taken heroic efforts to maintain our water. See 'Keeping Our Water Clean' for a description of what we do to assure absolutely clean and sanitary conditions. Under current conditions, we make additional effort to sanitize surfaces and high-touch areas in each tub area with hydrogen peroxide after each guest.
