Guam EPA is urging residents to stay safe. Recreational activities in unsafe beaches may result in minor illnesses such as sore throats or diarrhea. It might also result in more serious illnesses such as meningitis, encephalitis, or severe gastroenteritis.  Children, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems have a greater chance of getting sick when they come in contact with contaminated water.
