Webster Groves Pool Closed Because of Parasite

ST. LOUIS (KTRS)

Webster Groves plans to reopen its pool Friday after it had to close it over concerns of a parasite that causes diarrhea.

Webster Groves closed its pool Thursday after county health authorities reported a child in the area tested positive for Cryptosporidium (Crypto). Crypto is a parasite that causes severe diarrhea.
The County Health Department did not say the boy was infected with Crypto at the pool and are not calling it an outbreak. But, because he was at the Webster Groves pool during the incubation and shedding period earlier this month, as a precaution and to prevent any potential new cases of Crypto, Webster Groves is hyperchlorinating the pool.
