Should You Go Swimming Or Play Golf / Badminton?
Frankly speaking, this isn’t a good time to be going out for a swim, or to play golf or badminton, as community spread of COVID-19 is rampant with over 20K new cases reported every day!
However, if you really must, here are some steps to mitigate your risks :
- if possible, condos should not allow strangers to share the pool at the same time.
- if possible, book the entire swimming pool for your family so there are no strangers present at the same time
- try not to bring your unvaccinated children for a swim, unless you can book the entire pool
- try to play golf alone or with family members who are already living with you, instead of with friends
- try to play golf without a caddy to help you
- try to play tennis or badminton with a family member who is already living with you, rather than a friend
- never use the shower room or changing room
