Dear Sandra,

Water is generally moving very fast so it has not been documented as a major risk. Spray exposed skin with Tabard and rub skin well with a towel after getting out of the water. May get a itchy skin soon after infection and fever 6-9 weeks later. Worthwhile havibf a blood test 4 months after exposure.

Regards, Pete
