Coronavirus (COVID-19)

General Overview:

Safety is the top priority for the World Waterpark Association and its member facilities. Since January 2020, WWA has been monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak to aid members in staying informed on this issue. As this pandemic has spread on a global scale, we've all seen firsthand the impact to our individual way of life, as well as to the travel and tourism industry. Our industry has navigated a myriad of changes and we will continue to do so as the pandemic is shifted by mass vaccination availability and lowering case numbers.

To aid members in putting together 2021 reopening plans for their individual facilities, the WWA has made available a revised Aquatic Facility & Waterpark Reopening Considerations document, which has been recently reviewed to ensure that the guidance offered is relevant and in line with lessons learned from those operators who did reopen in 2020.

As this situation is still fluid and changing on a regular basis, WWA encourages all members to educate themselves about COVID-19 and how to mitigate your risks using the resources here. What follows are a collection of resources that we feel are accurate and trustworthy. Click on the blue section headers to review webinars, medical resources, resources for U.S. businesses and much more.

As always, if you need to speak to a WWA staff member, please call the WWA main line at +1-913-599-0300. Staff continues to working remotely, but we are available via email or phone to provide you with assistance as needed.
