A number of Winnipeg hotels had their swimming pools shut down this summer by the Health Protection branch of the Manitoba government.

Citing reasons of operating with inadequate water quality, health inspectors closed the whirlpool, wading pool and swimming pool at the CanadInns Transcona September 28. The facilities re-opened a day later.

Thermea Spa was also shut down for two days for the same reason on Sept. 19.
