Users of Hagg Lake should take precautions to prevent getting and spreading illness while recreating.
- Stay out of the water if you are sick with diarrhea. If you have cryptosporidium (“Crypto”), don’t go in the water until two weeks after diarrhea has completely stopped.
- Don’t poop in the water.
- Don’t swallow the water. Keep your mouth closed to avoid getting water in your mouth at all.
- Take kids on bathroom breaks and check diapers every hour. Change diapers away from the water’s edge to keep germs from getting in the water. Wash your hands after.
Wash your hands before eating, after using the bathroom or after changing a diaper.
