By CHIWPC Staff , 03/13/20, 10:00AM CDT


Hello CHI Family & Friends,

As you know, the coronavirus (COVID-19) is getting a lot of attention in the media and affecting daily life in an ever-changing world. CHI Is cognizant of the ongoing outbreak and after careful consideration, we have decided to postpone spring practices at NEIU and all associated water polo events until further notice. The decision has been made to protect the health and safety of the players, coaches, and staff. We will keep you all posted regarding training and competitions as we know more information.

Coaches are working to create workouts, video, content, ways to learn and enjoy the great sport of water polo remotely! Parents - we encourage you to share/forward info to your athletes and follow the club on social media!

We continue to stress the importance of preventing the spread of infection and share the following information being circulated by healthcare officials:

  1. Avoid getting closer than six feet to anyone coughing or sneezing; 
  2. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer that has 60-95% alcohol. This is especially important after going to the bathroom, before eating, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing;
  3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth;
  4. Cover your mouth with a tissue or your elbow if you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash, and then wash your hands;
  5. Stay home if you are sick, and away from the pool and from fellow team members;
  6. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces regularly;
  7. Monitor the WHO and CDC websites for travel advisories and follow their recommendations.


We will continue to monitor the situation, with additional updates posted on our website as new information is available. 

We thank you for your cooperation and understanding during these ever-changing times.
