(OPEN):
"PHILLIPS 66" AND "U-S-A SWIMMING" HAVE JOINED TOGETHER, TO LAUNCH THE "SAVING LIVES IS ALWAYS IN SEASON" LEARN-TO-SWIM CAMPAIGN.  TOGETHER, THEY HOPE TO RAISE PUBLIC-AWARENESS OF THE CRITICAL NEED FOR YEAR-ROUND POOL-ACCESS--IN ORDER TO PROVIDE LIFE-SAVING SWIM-LESSONS--AS "COVID-19"-RELATED POOL-CLOSURES HAVE INCREASED DROWNING-RISKS, AMONG CHILDREN.  ROWDY GAINES IS A THREE-TIME OLYMPIC GOLD-MEDALIST, AND "'U-S-A SWIMMING FOUNDATION' AMBASSADOR"...

(GAINES):
"
DROWNING IS THE LEADING CAUSE OF ACCIDENTAL DEATH, FOR CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF FOUR--AND THE SECOND-LEADING CAUSE OF THAT UNINTENTIONAL DEATH, FOR KIDS UNDER THE AGE OF 14.  SWIM-LESSONS CAN REDUCE THAT RISK, BY 88-PERCENT.  YET, THE CLOSURE OF POOLS IS PREVENTING THIS VALUABLE RESOURCE FROM BEING AVAILABLE IN THE COMMUNITY.  'COVID-19' CANNOT BE TRANSMITTED THROUGH CHLORINATED WATER--MAKING SWIM-LESSONS AND OTHER AQUATIC EDUCATION [INTO] LOW-CONTACT-RISK ACTIVITIES THAT CAN BE ADMINISTERED IN A SAFER WAY, WITH PROPER PROTECTIVE-EQUIPMENT AND -PROTOCOLS.  CLOSED POOLS MEAN [THAT] KIDS GO WITHOUT SWIM-LESSONS:  SAVING LIVES IS ALWAYS IN SEASON; LET LOCAL OFFICIALS KNOW THAT RESTRICTIONS ON POOLS SHOULD BE LIFTED, IN THE INTEREST OF PUBLIC-SAFETY."
