Healthy and Safe Swimming Week is May 23-29!

Swimming and other water-related activities are excellent ways to get the physical activity and health benefits needed for a healthy life. Americans swim hundreds of millions of times in pools, oceans, lakes, rivers, and hot tubs/spas each year and most people have a safe and healthy time enjoying the water. However, it is important to be aware of ways to prevent recreational water illnesses (RWIs), sunburn, and drowning that can occur.

Front seat, back seat, it doesn’t matter. All passengers must wear seat belts. Children up to age 8 must be properly restrained in a car seat or booster seat. Buckling up is the best thing you can do to reduce injuries and potentially save lives.

Zika Virus

Zika virus is primarily spread to people through mosquito bites. Once the virus is in a person, it can spread through blood transfusion, sexual contact, and from mother to child. Zika is not currently found in the continental United States, but cases have been reported in returning travelers.

If you are planning on traveling to a country currently affected by Zika virus or if you just want to learn more, contact the health department or click "Read More" to be taken to the Utah Department of Health's Zika virus website.
