Swimming is a fun, active and healthy activity. However, in the past two decades there has been an increase in
the number of Recreational Water Illness (RWI) outbreaks associated with swimming pools, water parks, and spas.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Healthy Swimming program offers information and resources
to raise awareness about RWIs and how to prevent them by practicing "Healthy Swimming" behaviors.

Please consult with your medical provider if you suspect that you are experiencing any RWI.
