COVID-19 Shores Safety - Nashville Shores


COVID-19 Shores Safety

For the safety of all our guest and team members, we have increased all health and safety measures at Nashville Shores Waterpark. You must follow all instructions posted throughout the park and given by our team members while visiting.

Implement Daily Wellness Checks: Team members undergo a verbal and temperature screening upon arrival each day. Team members are sent home if their temperature exceeds 100.4 °F.

Face Masks: In accordance with guidelines issued by local health authorities regarding the wearing of masks, all individuals who enter the season pass processing building and the general store will be required to wear a mask. Children 12 years old and younger are exempt from wearing masks. For safety reasons, face coverings are not permitted while swimming or on the attractions. Between the rides and attractions, in food lines, in restrooms, and in areas where socially distancing can be challenging, guests are encouraged to wear face coverings. Per local health guidelines, face masks are not mandatory outdoors in public, while maintaining 6 feet of distance from non-household members. While in the park, social distancing should be adhered to at all times. 

Team members are required to wear a face covering in virtually every area of the park if they do not interfere with safely performing their job responsibilities. 

Attraction Closures and Information: We will monitor capacity for each attraction and pool to help ensure adequate social distancing. Tubes will not be permitted in the wave pool. Due to capacity restrictions, each guest will be required to have a tube in the lazy river and may be limited to one trip around the river. Because of CDC recommended social distancing guidelines and the attractions being in non-chlorinated water (lake water), the Aqua Park and Banana Boats may not be open. Due to fewer anticipated guests on the weekday, we recommend a weekday visit to ensure the best visit possible.

Practice Social Distancing: Guests are guided by signs and announcements to stay at least six feet from others and limit interactions with those who are not in their party. Visual cues and signage are provided throughout the park to assist guests with social distancing practices. Deck layouts are modified to ensure distancing in all lounging and dining areas. Barriers have been put in place at food and merchandise locations to limit contact.  

Please Note: Social Distancing is a shared responsibility between our guests and the park. We provide guidance, but we count on our guests to follow this guidance in order to maintain the safest conditions for all guests and staff members.

Promote Hand Hygiene & Respiratory Etiquette: Additional hand sanitizing stations are placed throughout the park, and signs are displayed to encourage all employees and guests to wash their hands often and cover their coughs and sneezes.

Clean, Disinfect and Sanitize on a Continuous Basis: The CDC states, “disinfection with chlorine…should inactivate the virus in the water.” The water in all attractions at Nashville Shores Waterpark is treated with chlorination to maintain the healthiest water conditions. Team members are assigned additional duties that support cleanliness throughout the park, including disinfection of handrails, loungers, tabletops, door handles, and other surfaces.

Encourage Electronic Payments: Guests are encouraged to purchase admission tickets online prior to arriving at the park to minimize interactions during the park entry experience. Guests are encouraged to use card instead of using cash while visiting.

Manage Park Capacity: The number of guests admitted each day is limited per state and local guidelines. While we have temporary capacity limits due to local and state COVID guidelines, the tremendous size of our property allows us to safely social distance and we do not anticipate having to turn park visitors away. 

COVID-19 Notice: For the safety of all our guest and team members, we have increased all health and safety measures at Nashville Shores. You must follow all posted instructions and instructions given by our team members while visiting.
