MESQUITE, Texas (1080 KRLD) – A public pool in Mesquite remains open after employees come down with an infection.

An anonymous listener tells KRLD that 6 lifeguards at the Vanston Pool on Oates Dr. in Mesquite have come down with a staph infection after another employee was on the pool site for 4 days with the infection before making anyone aware of their condition.

But Wayne Larson with the city of Mesquite says the pool is safe for the public to use.

While he would not say how many employees were affected, and with what, he did say the employees were sent home and told not to return until they got a note from a doctor clearing them.

No notice was given to the public.

The pool is scheduled to remain open until August 16th.
