Officials at the Barbados Aquatic Sports Association (BASA) are keeping a keen watch on the health and safety of swimmers who returned to the Aquatic Centre pool from Monday to a new set of protocols.

President Cheryl Lady Forde also indicated BASA is feverishly preparing a proposal to submit to the COVID-19 Monitoring Unit, in hopes of gaining permission to host competitive meets in the coming months.

Lady Forde said they are also hoping to announce a new date for the CARIFTA Swimming Championships which were originally scheduled to be hosted at the Aquatic Centre from March 26 to April 7, but were postponed at the end of January due to the national pause which came into effect on February 3.
