Will Public Swimming Pools Be Safe To Swim In?

Many people are keen to get back in the water. But how safe will swimming be in a public pool?
Public health expert Chris Wiant says the water is safe in a pool that is properly maintained with chlorine disinfectant. The challenge is all the other people using it.
"You can be, say, standing in the shallow end of the pool and the water's fine. But if you're still coughing on the person who's three feet from you, you're just as exposed as you are if you're not in the pool," he said.
