Even though the water is treated with chemicals, studies show that one in eight public pools contain water borne bacteria such as E. Do not swallow the pool water, try not to rub your eyes, and shower afterward with hot water and soap. Meat should be cooked to at least degrees, so buy your friend a meat thermometer, so you can all avoid food poisoning.
Also beware of potato salad and other perishables that have been left out. Sun exposure.
The sun can put you at risk for sunburns, heat stroke, and dehydration. Lube up with sunscreen, drink plenty of water, and try to stay cool. Warm weather brings out buzzing mosquitoes, which can bring with them diseases. To protect yourself, bug spray is a good idea.
Watch out for ticks too since they can transmit Lyme disease. Wear tall socks, pants, and long sleeves when going into woodsy areas, and check your skin every time you come inside.
