Under current provincial lockdown measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19, all pools are closed. Staff will contact program participants to advise of impacts and cancellations. Change rooms and lockers are unavailable. Stay up-to-date on all changes to City services by visiting COVID-19: Changes to City Services.

Before going to any pool, you must complete the Ontario Ministry of Health self-assessment for COVID-19 and if you do not pass the assessment, you should not visit any pool.

In compliance with the City of Toronto Mandatory Mask or Face Covering By-Law 541-2020, wearing a mask/face covering is required in indoor public spaces. This includes:

  • changerooms
  • washrooms
  • all other inside spaces

The face-covering can be a mask, scarf, bandana, other cloth covering or non-surgical paper mask as long as it covers your nose and mouth.

You don’t need to wear a mask or face-covering:

  • outdoors
  • on the deck
  • in the pool

The number of swimmers and non-swimmers allowed has been reduced so that people have more space to maintain physical distancing.


  • Indoor leisure swim is free for all ages
  • Indoor lane swim fees are found on Drop-In Swimming

Visiting an Indoor Pool

Community Centre Sign-In

Everyone must sign in when using a community centre or an indoor pool. This includes:

  • providing a first name
  • providing an email address or phone number
  • answering COVID-19 screening questions

This will help with Toronto Public Health contact tracing if it’s necessary.

Using the Pool and Changerooms

  • You must wear a mask or cloth face-covering except when in the pool or on the pool deck.
  • Capacity at indoor pools will be limited to allow for physical distancing and so that as many people as possible have the opportunity to swim.

Continue to follow Toronto Public Health guidance while visiting community recreation centres or indoor pools:

  • practise physical distancing
  • practise good hand hygiene often. Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer
  • sneeze or cough into a tissue or your elbow
  • limit contact with people you don’t live with and keep a distance of a least two metres apart.

Outdoor pools, wading pools, splash/spray pads and swimming beaches are closed for the 2020 season.
