    Another reason not to swim in public pools

    Got online this morning to read up on some news, and one of the local stations headline was: Health officials warn pools to prepare for more crypto

    So now our local Health Dept is telling all public pools to super chlorinate to kill the organism.

    I like kids but...last year a friend who swims in public/health club pool ended up in hospital that way.
    pool owner paid her bill. I told her I just do not like seeing kids with swim diapers on.
    she remembers a few days earlier of a kid wearing one in it.

    Interesting that the pool owner would get the checkbook out for that, especially since it would be kinda hard to connect her case to the pool, as opposed to any other (pick your fomite) place.

    It's scary to think that it's not safe to do any swimming in public pools.
