Recreational Water Illness and Injury Prevention Resources
The week before Memorial Day has been designated National Recreational Water Illness and Injury (RWII) Prevention Week. Each year, RWII Prevention Week focuses on simple steps swimmers and pool operators can take to help ensure a healthy and safe swimming experience. CDC’s National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, Division of Foodborne, Waterborne, and Environmental Diseases, has developed a toolkit to help public health professionals inform the public, media, community leaders, and others about RWII Prevention Week. These resources are meant to help public health professionals engage their target audiences and increase awareness of this yearly observance.
