The CDC just released a new report on public POOLS, and found that in 58% of the pool water they tested . . . there was FECAL CONTAMINATION. EWWWWW! The CDC says, quote, "Swimmers frequently contaminate pool water when they have a fecal incident in the water or when feces rinse off their bodies because they do not shower thoroughly." 2% of the pools had other types of fecal bacteria that can cause diarrhea and get you sick. 59% of pools had the bacteria that can cause rashes or ear infections. The good news is that you can probably avoid infections unless you swallow a lot of pool water or eat without washing your hands after you swim.
Since it's Friday-- let's rock out a little....
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, Y'ALL! HAVE SOME FUN! :)
