Sick at Phil Foster Park

07:33 May 13 2024 Phil Foster Park

Description
I went snorkeling on Friday May 10th during high tide. I started getting the runs severely on Saturday. I also started experiencing a fever, earache, sinus infection, and respiratory illness. On Sunday I started having a bladder infection as well. With bleeding from sinuses and bladder. I checked Beach 911 first for water quality issues and it said it was safe. The water quality should be tested daily, but it's only tested twice a month.
