European Waterpark Association Addresses Bavarian Minister-President with Open Letter

In response to the considerations of Bavaria’s Minister-President Dr. Markus Söder to reopen public bathing places such as lakes in the course of the relaxation of Covid-19 protection measures, the European Waterpark Association (EWA) just released a statement in the form of an open letter. In the appeal addressed to Dr. Söder, EWA Managing Director Dr. Klaus Batz explains from an expert point of view why the reopening of swimming and leisure pools should be considered first. Pool operations offer the important advantages of controlled capacity limitation and bathing water treatment, which significantly reduce the risk of infection compared to public bathing spaces.
