SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Hey, toddlers, back in the pool.

Utah health officials say swimming restrictions have been lifted for kids who aren't potty-trained and anyone else who wears a swim diaper. The number of cases tied to cryptosporidium are finally slowing down.

There have been only six cases of crypto in the last three weeks. Officials report 1,900 cases in Utah since June.

Crypto is a parasite that can cause severe diarrhea. Since late August, pools at parks, hotels and schools in most counties have banned kids wearing swim diapers.
