People want to know about lasting affects. If they come in contact with the water. Will they get sick right away? Might this be something that lingers?
@Teho: We will do just that, keeping you up to date on any new developments
@Lynette: Hi Lynette, you should definitely not allow your children to swim, but as far as any airborne toxins that they could be allergic to, that would be very unlikely
@Teho: That I cannot answer Teho but the harm from the toxins is typically a skin and mucosal surface reaction, like a dermatitis, and it can also cause GI distress with gastritis, vomiting and diarrhea
@TomKwiat: Hello Tom, I would be happy to help, let me know, thanks
@Teho: I will absolutely try to be there
@Rich: Rich, this is a dynamic situation and the advisory is changing all the time. For safety purposes, I would avoid that area as well until further notice

@paul1022: Paul, swimmers ear is very common and can happen in even the cleanest water because it typically stems from a small irritation in the external ear that worsens once its macerated from water immersion.
