From Yahoo! News (source link): A Colorado city is standing by its decision to turn away a Muslim woman from its recreation center pool for wearing an Islamic dress over a shirt and pants.
Saba Ali told KMGH-TV (http://bit.ly/1vUSBA1 ) that she offered to just wear the shirt and pants to swim on Sunday but was denied.
Commerce City spokeswoman Michelle Halsted says street clothes aren’t allowed in the pool because they can increase the likelihood of contamination and waterborne illness.

She says full body swimsuits are allowed, including “burkinis” — loose fitting full-body swimsuits with a hood made for Islamic women. She says the city’s swimwear brochure will be updated to make clear full-body swimsuits but not street clothes are allowed.
