Stomach flu and respiratory symptoms

05:42 May 25 2022 Waveland Veteran Beach, Waveland, Mississippi

We took our grandson to the beach for the first time. It was a small beach with placid water. I thought to wasn't as much fun for us but perfect for him to play in the edge with such shallow waves. I went out farther and floated, swam, etc.By the time we were back to our rental, I had a sore throat and my husband started vomiting and had diarrhea. Soon after I was nauseous with tummy cramps and trips to the bathroom. Today, next day, I am having some disturbing respiratory symptoms to the point of needing to see the doctor and be put on antibiotics. I hope this is the worst it gets. I will never go to a beach/shore area similar to that again.
