If you found out that an E. coli outbreak was at your child's Gym...

Would you continue to take them there? What if your child got sick from E.coli, would you sue the gym? What if they were in the hospital because they were so sick? This is an ongoing issue where I live. Here is the post:

What is your take on the issue? I can't believe they are not cooperating, and I can't believe people are sticking up for them.

  • I wouldn't take my child there if there was a big issue with E. Coli. Also, I don't think I would sue if my child just got a little sick, but if it were so bad they had to be hospitalized, I woudl sue for the cost of medical treatment, nothing more.

  • Why would a kid be eating at a gym?

  • I would wait until they cleaned their facility and the virus died down. This reminds me of when outbreaks occur in hotels, even the nice ones. They usually have to close off the infected section(s) and sanitize everything top to bottom before being able to reopen them to guests.

    E-coli can also be spread through other types of contact, such as toilet seats, sink handles, door handles, anything that can transfer the virus from a person's hands to an open orifice of the body, commonly the mouth.
