Crawfish Aquatics Baton Rouge

BATON ROUGE, LA. (BRPROUD) – Crawfish Aquatics is changing its face mask policy as the area continues to deal with the fourth surge of COVID-19.

The swim school is providing more information about this decision in a statement below:

Dear Crawfish Swim School Families, 

Unfortunately, COVID-19 illness has continued to rise throughout our state. Major hospitals in our area have shut down inpatient procedures because the number of cases are climbing daily. The new variant has presented the largest pediatric Covid census since the beginning of the pandemic. Fifty percent of all admitted patients in the hospitals are now under the age of 50.  

We are responsible to our staff and to you, our members, to regard safety as our number one priority. Therefore, we will all commit to doing our very best to protect ourselves and each other from this deadly disease.  

Due to the highly transmissible nature of the Delta Variant of COVID-19 and CDC recommendations, we will be requiring face masks/coverings for all staff (out of the water) regardless of their vaccination status. We politely and respectfully ask customers to wear their mask when social distancing is not possible.

If you will not wear a mask, we ask you to socially distance yourself from others. Thank you so much for understanding and helping us keep our staff and you, our members, safe!

Crawfish Aquatics has two locations in Baton Rouge, one at 8556 Siegen Ln. and the other at 7150 Bluebonnet Blvd.
