Run for the hills, it's Cryptosporidium!

Anyone else having cryptosporidium issues???  We just got this notice from a masters swim group in Kansas City:

"Please understand that there was no reported case of cryptosporidium coming from Roeland Park, but due to the fact that if some pools are closed, infected patrons would migrate to the open pools, it was advised that all pools close down until after Labor Day. Because so many pools have been closed, masters practices are effectively cancelled this entire week. We expect to be back on regular schedule on Tuesday, September 6th. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Closure due to Cryptosporidiosis

Good afternoon - I just came back from an area Aquatic managers/representatives meeting on the recommendation from Jo. Co. Environmental to close the outdoor pools for the remainder of the outdoor season due to the reported cases of cryptosporidiosis. There were representatives from Shawnee, Lenexa, Prairie Village, Fairway, Mission, Gardner and Mission Hills Country Club. Based on the pools that were suspected of being contaminated, the group felt for the safety of the patrons that the pools at those locations will close down. Some of the representatives are waiting for final approval from their councils and boards but felt the boards would approve of the closures. Last Monday the City of Mission was told that they had been suspected of being contaminated and then Leawood later in the week. There were other pools which included YMCA’s and apartment pools that were cited for the same reason. The RPAC will reopen Sept. 6, 2011 for fall lap swimming schedule. Please let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you
