Just keep your mouth shut and no one will get hurt

As cases of cryptosporidium continue to crop up across the U.S. Midwest, at least two separate outbreaks appear to be emerging in Kansas, with at lease seven sick in Sedgwick County and additional cases reported in Johnson County.

Kansas state epidemiologist Gail Hansen told The Witchita Eagle that people don’t have to quit swimming this weekend, adding,

"Basically, if you’re in a pool, keep your mouth shut. Because that’s really the only way you’ll get it."

Background information is available at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control Healthy Swimming website.
