Newport pool reopens after bug outbreak
A Newport swimming pool which shut last month after 20 people were infected with a bug is reopening at lunchtime today.
The council said it was "100% satisfied everything is in order" after cases of cryptosporidium were reported meaning it had to be drained and regrouted.
Public Health Wales (PHW) has urged swimmers to adopt better hygiene after seeing a rise in cases of the bug, which can survive chlorine in pools.
PHW gave the pool a clean bill of health last week after tests revealed no further presence of the bug.
