“All the hotels that have pools, have closed their after came the order. Now, of course, many guests ask about additional services, so hoteliers each region “hold a hand on pulse”, to open the pools as soon as this approval is received,” – said in an interview with “RG” the Vice-President of the Federation of restaurateurs and hoteliers Vadim Prasov.

“the Decision to open social infrastructure receives the highest official of the subject of the Russian Federation by agreement with the chief sanitary doctor of the region and the epidemiological situation”, – explained the “RG” in the Federal service. So, whether a hotel guest to use the pool, if any, depends on the region.

Previously, the Agency published its guidelines for the operation of swimming pools and saunas. “Visitors to the pools in the hotels must comply with social distance and personal hygiene” – noted in Rospotrebnadzor. In particular, the lockers in the locker room allowed subject to social distance not less than 1.5 metres. This hotel must have struck the signal markings to limit access to neighboring booths, to divide the flow of visitors or limit.

the same rules apply to saunas. The number of visitors is calculated “based on the social distance of 1.5 meters and floor space,” – noted in Rospotrebnadzor. In other words, hotels should put in a sauna visitors so that each had a 1.5 square meter.

Actually in the pool, for example, group aerobics, the water area should be not less than five square meters per person. But take a dip after visiting the sauna will not succeed. As reported in the CPS, the recommendations for baths and saunas there is a clause which stipulates a ban on the use of pools and hot-tubs.
