Test the pool for bacteria yourself

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The CDC says there's an increasing number of infections caused by bacteria in public pools. So health officials recommend testing those pools yourself.

You can visit www.HealthyPools.org to request a free test kit. They'll send you strips to dip in the pool before you dip in yourself.

Health officials also say swimmers should shower before going in the pool and visit the bathroom frequently.
