Safe Swimming

Think Health and Safety for the Swim Season! 

Many people have become sick from germs found in contaminated swimming areas. Practice these steps to protect yourself and your family:

  • Keep your head out of the water, use nose clips or hold your nose shut.
  • Don’t swim or submerge your head in stagnant warm bodies of water when air temperatures are high and water levels are low.
  • Don’t swim when you have diarrhea.
  • Practice good hygiene such as showering with soap before and after swimming.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly after using the toilet or changing diapers.
