When you swim in a public pool, you're basically
sharing a bathtub. So you can only hope that there's enough chlorine in
there to kill whatever germs strangers have left behind.
Unfortunately, a new Centers for Disease Control review
of more than 84,000 inspections performed on swimming facilities
(including pools, hot tubs, water parks, etc.) in Arizona, California,
Florida, New York, and Texas, suggests you might need more than hope.
Nearly 80 percent of inspections uncovered at least one health violation.
In 12 percent of cases, these issues were horrifying enough to warrant
closing the pool.Yes
