At the 57 minute of the hour, the lifeguard will blow his or her whistle ending your swim time. You will exit the pool, put on your face covering, pick up your belongings and exit though the exit gate. Entrance and exit gates are different gates, so as to prevent contact with arriving swimmers and to streamline the transition.
