Good day Raptors
The Coastlands Aquatic Centre has strict rules around swimming when you have Diarrhoea.
Diarrhoea and swimming don’t mix. Diarrhoea is one of the most common recreational water illness (RWI). Swimmers who are sick with diarrhoea—or who have been sick in the last two weeks—risk contaminating pool water with germs. Certain germs (that cause diarrhoea) can live from minutes to days in pools, even if the pool is well-maintained. Once the pool has been contaminated, all it takes is for someone to swallow a small amount of pool water to become infected.
To help protect the health of others, do not swim when you have diarrhoea, or if you have had diarrhoea in the last 14 days . Microscopic amounts of infected fecal matter can contaminate an entire pool or hot tub and make others sick if they swallow the water.
If you get ill, let’s respect one another and the other swimmers❤️ . Stay home and get better so that you can return to swimming strong and healthy.
