Minneapolis Area Battles Crypto in Community Pools

Andy Berg

A second community pool in Minnesota's Twin Cities area has been hit with possible cryptosporidium contamination.

The Shoreview Community Center says someone swam in its pool after having been infected with cryptosporidium, a parasite that gives people diarrhea.

The center temporarily closed the pool to disinfect the facility, according to the local CBS affiliate.

The Shoreview contamination comes after the Foss Swim School saw over 100 people from two of its locations get sick from the parasite

The Minnesota Department of Health says it started investigating after reports of people getting sick at four Foss locations starting on September 30.

All of the Foss Swim School locations have now reopened.
