The Western United States continues to experience excessive heat, with dangerous temperatures here in the Coachella Valley. The Palm Desert Aquatic Center is providing some relief.
Itâ€™s a cool way to workout. The Palm Desert Aquatic Center is now back in business for lap swimming. Swimmers can sign up for a 45-minute time slot online. One person is allowed per lane in each session.
â€œWeâ€™re glad that itâ€™s only a 45 minute swim session for people because we donâ€™t want anyone coming back and overtly pushing themselves, so our guards are really paying attention to how often someoneâ€™s stopping at the wall, how hard theyâ€™re pushing themselves, if theyâ€™re coming out and resting on a chair, because you know, a lot of these people havenâ€™t been in the water for about five months so we want to make sure people come in and you take your swim slow,â€ said David Keyes, the aquatic manager.See KESQ
