Affected residents are advised to boil water for at least one minute and use bottled water for drinking, brushing teeth and preparing food.

It is still safe to bathe in the water for adults and older teens, but the water should not be swallowed.

Special care must also be taken when washing dishes, and dishwashers should reach 60 C or higher for the dishes to be safely disinfected.
