While in contact with the amoeba in natural bodies of water is common, the infection is rare due primarily to the only route of infection being through the nose. This amoeba can infect children by entering the sinus cavity and become fatal.

In order to protect your kids this summer, make sure to never let them play or swim in warm, muddy, stagnant waters. Also, teach them to hold their nose or use nose clips when playing in any natural water body. The city and local health officials want to warn anyone who will be swimming in area lakes and rivers about the possible presence of a high preventable waterborne disease.
