ANN ARBOR (WWJ/AP) – The Big Ten women’s swimming and diving championship will start as planned after a “deep clean” of the University of Michigan pool.
Some Michigan students have been hit with a gastrointestinal illness this week, including members of the women’s swim team. Spokesman Brad Rudner says morning warmups for the Big Ten championship were canceled, but the event will start as scheduled Wednesday night.
Rudner says water and chlorine levels were tested, and Canham Natatorium got an extra scrubbing as a precautionary step. He says the pool is safe for swimmers and spectators.
Students at U of M who are sick are being advised to isolate themselves in their rooms, where they will be served meals if requested, and additional precautions are being taken to help stem further spread of the illness.
