The summer vacation season is upon us. That means fun in the sun and staying cool in the inviting waters of Louisiana’s beaches, rivers, lakes and pools. Before jumping in for a refreshing swim, the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals reminds everyone to be safe and cautious. A fun and exciting day on the water can quickly turn tragic, and people can become sick if they don’t know the risks and take precautions.
