WCCO Health Report Spurs State To Create Website

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A WCCO story about germs at indoor playgrounds has led to a new state resource for parents.

The report showed high levels of bacteria on every surface tested at three different indoor playgrounds.

That doesn’t necessarily mean a child will get sick, but the higher the number of bacteria, the better the chance.

Republican State Senator Mary Kiffmeyer hoped to pass a bill regulating the cleaning of indoor playgrounds, and while it didn’t go to a vote, but the Department of Health has created this web site.

The biggest lesson is simple — wash your child’s hands before and after they use the playground.
