Curious, does the Ottawa river get tested for bacteria? I know we have a river running through our town, and when I asked why no one is allowed to swim in it, it's partly because they stopped testing the water years ago. Unfortunate for the campground that has a beach they aren't allowed to swim in and another for day useI got a sinus infection from swimming in the Ottawa River close to Montreal the weekend before leaving on our big trip to the West. I had a runny nose and cough for three weeks. On the fourteenth day, the first we were not changing location, my best friend took me to the Strathcona Health Centre. After over four hours, blood work, chest xray, and ECG, the doctor said I had a 99% probability of a virus infection and to keep treating the symptoms as I was. Twelve days later, yucky mucus, worsening cough, and similar tests in the Urgent Care Centre in Cochrane, the xray showed possible pneumonia, inflammation in the lungs, and the doctor prescribed prednisone for the inflammation and a strong antibiotic for the possible pneumonia. Three days later my coughing ended and B had been coughing for a few days. Not overly worried about Covid but maybe I should be.
