If You Think You’ve Encountered E. coli, You’ll Want to do This Now
High levels of E. coli were discovered in numerous bodies of water in Boise. If you think you've contracted the bacteria, you're going to want to do something about it.
Both Quinn's Pond and Esther Simplot Park have postponed swimming until further notice to investigate just how dangerous the swimming areas are. If you found yourself at either location recently, you may have contracted E. coli, and you'll want to take some precautions. Per my research, there doesn't appear to be an actual cure for E. coli, as it should run its course through your body, but there are steps you can take to alleviate the sympotms:
- Intake plenty of fluids
- Avoid antibiotics
If you do believe you've contracted E. coli, take it easy and contact a medical professional.
