We (as in the state of Utah) are starting to see cases of cryptosporidium crop up. “Crypto” is that nasty bug that hides in swimming pools, is resistant to chlorine, and caused a massive diarrhea outbreak in 2007. So, does that mean you need to ditch your summer pass to the pool? Probably not. Find out how your local pool treats for crypto and what their policies are regarding swim diapers. UV is better than chlorine, and requiring swim diapers is probably a good thing. Use common sense with good hand washing.
If you do have symptoms of crypto, including diarrhea, vomiting, stomach cramps, schedule an appointment and we can do a stool culture.
Hopefully we won’t see the same kind of outbreak we did in 2007…but if we do, you’ll be prepared.
