Getting ready to go swimming or working at the pool? Don’t leave home without CDC’s Healthy Swimming app!

Help keep yourself and your family healthy and safe this summer swim season.  We all share the water we play and swim in.  Learn about the germs that we all bring into the places we swim, how they could make you and others sick, and how you can take a few easy and effective steps to help protect yourself and others.

This app will tell you about:

  • How we benefit from swimming. Did you know swimming can improve your health—and your mood?
  • Where we swim. Did you know germs could be lurking anywhere you swim or play in the water—even in the pool down the street?
  • What’s in the water. Did you know chlorine and other disinfectants don’t kill germs instantly?
  • How to stay healthy and safe. Healthy and safe swimming is easy with CDC’s simple tips!
