Swimming From Home: What Will Getting Back in the Pool Look Like?

We are all trying to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic as best we can. Staying at home and not socializing is not an easy task for anyone, and keeping a swimmer out of the pool is equally antagonizing.

He also said he thinks practices will look a lot different once teams are able to get back into the water, for example training from opposite ends of the pool.
