Washington (CNN) If you live in a home with an air conditioning system, you probably don’t want to be using it outdoors.
That’s because some indoor water sources can pose water-borne pathogens, according to the American Association of Water Resources.
The association’s website warns people to avoid swimming in or around swimming pools, fountains, lawns, pool decks, or swimming pools at any time of day or night.
The website also recommends people wear long pants when they bathe, shower, or bathe.
The same goes for water-resistant clothing.
The American Association for Water Resources also recommends keeping pets indoors, and it urges people to keep their windows closed.
Water-related illnesses include water-related illness, which is caused by anaerobic bacteria, such as E. coli, and respiratory illness, such a pneumonia or bronchitis.
A study by researchers at the University of Washington in Seattle found that water-associated illness was the third-leading cause of death for children in the United States, and more than one in 10,000 children had water-acquired pneumonia.
And while water is considered safe for most people to drink, people with weakened immune systems may be at greater risk of developing severe infections and death.
That can include the development of severe pneumonia and sepsis, which can cause death, and kidney failure.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises people to take their antibiotics every two weeks, and the CDC advises that people who have been exposed to water should avoid swimming or diving in water that contains chemicals or solids, and to use a breathing mask if swimming or bathing outdoors.
