Can COVID-19 Spread Through Hot Tubs And Pools?


As we’ve all heard on tv, online news articles and social media, the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak that originated in China has made its way to the United States, where more cases are popping up across the country. Paradise Valley Spas extends our condolences to those families who have been affected and have lost loved ones to a virus.

With more people staying home from work in the San Francisco Bay Area, we want to give you reassurance that hot tub and pool use is safe and cannot spread COVID-19. According to the CDC, “There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.” (

Now is a better time than ever to take advantage of extra time at home to enjoy your hot tub or swim spa. Hydrotherapy will reduce stress, help you sleep better, and aids in your body’s daily recovery from physical activity or lack thereof. If you have kids, they can still go outside and play in the hot tub and you won’t have to worry about them contracting Coronavirus.

It’s times like these when trusted brands like Sundance Spas, Bullfrog Spas and Jacuzzi Hot Tubs give customers reassurance that they made the right decision in their spa purchase. Advanced water filtration and ease of maintenance ensure that you, your friends, and your family remain safe.

If you are stuck at home and looking for something to improve the quality of your life during this global crisis, visit one of our retail locations and see how much a hot tub or a self-cleaning swimming pool can positively impact your health. We are taking extra precautions as a company to ensure our retail store visitors remain virus free through extreme disinfection and cleanliness.
