CDC gives Steps for Healthy Swimming

 

Protection Against Recreational Water Illnesses (RWIs)

Centers for Disease Control and PreventionAtlanta, GA – You can choose to swim healthy! You have the power to help keep germs out the water in places we swim in the first place. Remember, chlorine and other disinfectants don’t kill germs instantly. Additionally, the mixing of chlorine with pee and sweat uses up the chlorine in the pool, which would otherwise kill germs.

We all share the water we swim in, and each of us needs to do our part to help keep ourselves, our families, and our friends healthy.
