    Welcome!

    pool-school/chlorine_cya_chart_shock shows that 6 is the minimum you need to maintain for your CYA level.

    The chlorine is no cause for concern, the cloudiness is. You're not done with the shock process.

    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Yes, it's fine to swim.

    Getting rid of the cloudiness requires you to learn how to shock the pool correctly so the cloudiness will clear. read "How to Shock Your Pool" up in Pool School.
