A public swimming pool in Essen, the Grugabad, opened its doors again this Thursday after a lengthy closure due to the coronavirus pandemic. People could be seen swimming in the pool, following social distancing rules, Friday.
No more than 1,000 individuals are to be allowed into the complex of pools at the same time and people must maintain distancing both inside and outside the water.
The opening of public pools is a milestone in the return to business as usual after the coronavirus lockdown, as gyms and other fitness facilities remain closed in other German states, including Berlin.
