I WILL bring my child to the pool only AFTER they have had a shower then put their bathing suit on OR their ‘bottom’ has been cleaned with warm water and soap before their suit has been put on. I WILL put on a SWIM diaper if my child does not have control of their bathroom needs. I will NOT bring my child to the pool if they have had diarrhea in the previous 24 hours. I will NOT bring my child to the pool if they have had a virus with vomiting and diarrhea within 2 weeks.Thank you from West Chester University of PA.Your signature says that you will abide by this pledge._____________________________ Date: ___________
