Healthy and Safe Swimming Week is observed in May and sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Healthy and Safe Swimming Week focuses on simple steps swimmers and pool operators can take to help ensure a healthy and safe swimming experience for everyone. It focuses on the role of swimmers, aquatics and beach staff, residential pool owners, and public health officials in preventing drowning, pool chemical injuries, and outbreaks of illnesses.
Healthy and Safe Swimming Week highlights swimmer hygiene and the need for swimmers to take an active role to help protect themselves and prevent the spread of germs.
