Diarrhea and the pool?

I have always heard that you shouldn't take kids to the pool if they have had diarrhea within 3 days. Why is this? So other kids dont get sick? Or because there could be an accident?

  • I would hope other parents wouldnt bring their sick kids out to the pool, exposing others to the germs just so they can feel relieved. Give the kid a cold bath instead. Diarrhea in a pool ruins the experience for everyone.
