    I would think you could inhale the organism in the mist while taking a shower.

    Agree. Am in Louisiana and if it were in our supply I would wear swimmers nose pincers to shower and wash face. Would probably use bottled water to brush teeth and for consumption. At least one adult died due to using a neti pot with contaminated water,
