    Cover letter from CDC’s National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, National Center for Environmental Health, and, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control -- Outreach Suggestions for Community Partners and the Public -- Links to CDC Healthy and Safe Swimming Information and Resources -- Sample Press Release -- Sample Op-Ed -- Sample Proclamation.

    The week before Memorial Day, May 23–29, 2016, marks the twelfth annual Healthy and Safe Swimming Week. This is a great time to engage and collaborate with public pool operators, beach managers, the media, residential pool owners, and the public to maximize the health benefits of water-based physical activity while minimizing the risk of recreational water–associated illness and injury in your community.

    The theme of this year’s Healthy and Safe Swimming Week is “Check out Healthy and Safe Swimming.” Bathers and parents of young bathers can help protect their health and that of their families and friends by checking the latest inspection results for public pools, water playgrounds, hot tubs/spas, and other venues they swim in treated water, and by doing their own simple and short inspection before getting in the water.
