CLEVELAND, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – The kids are drawn to the water in this hot weather, and the American Red Cross wants it to be a safe weekend.

So if you’re in charge of watching the kids in the water, you should know even a short lapse of attention can mean the difference between life and death.

And, you should swim with a buddy and a lifeguard around.

Never swim alone.

Also, the Red Cross says you want to add in all your COVID safety measures.

You want to keep that 6-feet of distancing both in and out of the water.
