CDC: Public pools are loaded with E.Coli

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

It's pool weather, but before you jump in, you might want to think about what's in the water.

A study of pools in the Atlanta area found that the majority contained E.coli and the CDC says that the results are probably typical of pools across the country.

How can you protect yourself and other swimmers? Make sure you shower before you go, remind your kids to take frequent bathroom breaks, and if your baby is wearing a "swim diaper," make sure you check it frequently.
