Travelers to endemic areas should wear footwear when walking on the beach and other areas with soil. Community education in endemic areas should include sewage management, avoidance of soil contaminated with feces or use of feces for fertilizer, wearing of protective clothing when handling sewage or contaminated soil, and wearing of shoes while outdoors.
