a Closed because of the pandemic, aquaparks of Krasnodar Krai suffer serious losses — they have to pay staff salaries and maintain the slides in the absence of visitors. While the authorities are in no hurry to let tourists in swimming pools, water parks, representatives of assured: they have to rest safer than on the beach due to chlorinated water. Meanwhile, infectious disease rnsmu. Pirogov said “Газете.Ru” that does not share their optimism.
Aquaparks of Krasnodar Krai will be able to resume work, when the incidence of COVID-19 in the subject is reduced to 0.5, reported in the regional Department of Rospotrebnadzor.
Now the figure is equal to 1.0. “Little by little it will fall,” — said the Agency in a conversation with RIA “Novosti”.
In addition, the Federal service still has not provided the regions guidance on the operation of waterparks in the context of a pandemic, why their discovery is impossible, said Rospotrebnadzor in Krasnodar.
Associate Professor of infectious diseases at PF rnsmu. Pirogov Ministry of health of the Russian Federation Ivan Konovalov explained “Газете.Ru” why the authorities hesitate with opening water parks. “The fact that the beaches are outdoors. Statistically infection occurs in confined areas — this is due to lower air circulation. In the case of outdoor water parks we are talking about a small volume of water in the pool, causing the risk of infection increases,” — said the expert.
However, there is a water parks and sanitary and epidemiological benefits compared to the black sea beaches, which allowed the set to open in early June.
“Chlorination, of course, has antiseptic properties. But the main route of transmission is still droplet and airborne. And the bodies of sanitary control to implement such restrictive and permissive activities on the basis of the worst scenario,” — said Konovalov.
At this time, the leadership and staff of the parks suffer because of the inability to resume activity: they were told “Газете.Ru” that contain slides and territory in order very expensive, which is especially apparent in the lack of revenue.
“It’s a failed season. We experience financial problems: half of the season has passed, and we not only work pay to the payroll, continue to maintain the hill. If slides and pools are not to serve, they just come to desolation. Will have to be closed for a long restoration, which will have even more spending cash,” — said “Газете.Ru” in the Sochi water Park “Aqualoo”.
The same problems were experienced the water Park from the other end of the black sea coast — GoodZone. “We are not at zero, but minus. Continue to support the Park in a healthy state, and that payment�� utilities, rent covers all expenses which we bear,” — said “Газете.Ru” Victor Romashchenko — managing water-entertainment complex, located in the village of Arkhipo-Osipovka of the Krasnodar territory.
Employees of the parks believe that the rest in their schools is safer than in other places inhabited by tourists. “The sea has opened at sea there is no coronavirus, and in chlorinated water. In Krasnodar over complain that children bathe in the fountain with technical water. So open the parks, and there are children to splash around in the regular pool!” — the “Газете.Ru” the water Park “Dzhubga” in the Tuapse district of Krasnodar region.
The staff and entertainment complexes, he said, and not hope for their discovery. “Hope has been fading, because at the moment the restrictions set until 21 July, and this is the end of the season: there is only the month of August. September is not the season, as people go with kids in your city, arrives only a more Mature group that the Park does not need”, — noted in “Aqualoo”.
However, if water parks are still open, it is unlikely to compensate for the losses that they suffered in months of inactivity, said “Газете.Ru” the head of the GoodZone. “Nobody knows what will be the season. How many people in the Park is a unique season as this year. It is unclear whether we will be able to compensate the losses although partially.
but Why beaches and other areas can work, and Park outdoors with chlorinated water and direct sunlight — no. This logic we do not understand”, — said Romashchenko.
Executives are water parks and entertainment complexes of Sochi, has appealed to the Governor of Krasnodar Krai Veniamin Kondratyev with a request to allow them to resume work subject to sanitary and epidemiological rules.
“Aqualoo”, “starfish”, “amfibius and Aquapark” Mayak” is sent to the head of the subject letter, which indicated that prepared the grounds and staff to service guests in the period of the pandemic. “To prepare for the holiday season enterprises were procured antiseptic and PPE, designed for the fulfilment of the requirements of Rospotrebnadzor in the current situation”, — stated in the appeal, which was available to RIA “Novosti”.
Water parks noted that public financial support is not able to “compensate for the losses incurred companies.” In addition, managers of Sochi complexes once again stressed that work outdoors exposed to UV radiation, and water used on the slides and in the pools, constantly disinfected.
