OK here is a good solution for that. Don鈥檛 go swimming in sewage.

Damn! Thought we wiped out Polio many years ago!
Possibility that it's coming from immigrants that have never been vaccinated for it.

@Rooster Immigrants was my thought too.
@Rooster The anti-vaxxers now who [b]aren鈥檛[/b] immigrants will make things infinitely worse. When I was a child the Salk-Sabin was still fairly new, but a handful of people were either not allowing their kids to get it, or hadn鈥檛 had access. So there were polio survivors in my class, in wheelchairs. I hate the idea of going back to those days.

@robb65 From south of the border where the waters stay warm. Polio is found in warm waters. Can be spread up north by someone who is infected and swims in lakes that have warmed up.
