Vomit and Blood in the Pool

1. People often vomit in pools from accidentally swallowing pool water while swimming. If a person
swallows pool water and throws it up, it is unlikely to spread illness.
2. If a person throws up more than just pool water – like previously eaten food – into the pool,
evacuate the pool immediately and notify any other persons in the pool to evacuate the pool.
Respond to vomit as you would to poop in the pool.
3. Responding to blood in the pool – Chlorine kills germs found in blood (such as hepatitis B and HIV).
CDC is not aware of any instances in which a person has become infected with blood borne germs
after being exposed to a blood spill in a pool.
These guidelines are in line with CDC recommendations. For more information, go to:
