    Giardia (gee-ARE-dee-uh) is a germ that causes diarrhea. This germ is found in the fecal matter of a person who has been infected by Giardia.

    It has a tough outer shell that allows it to survive for up to 45 minutes even in properly chlorinated pools.

    Giardia is a common cause of recreational water illness (disease caused by germs spread through pool water) in the United States and can cause prolonged diarrhea (for 1–2 weeks). It can make anyone sick.
