PORT SYDNEY, ON- Swimming isn’t being recommended at the beach in Port Sydney.

According to a notice from the Town of Huntsville, the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit has notified the town government about an advisory at the beach after samples were collected on Tuesday.

The beach will be posted with warning signs that state the most recent water samples showed bacteria in numbers that may increase your risk of developing minor skin, eye, ear, nose or throat infections or stomach illness.

If you choose to swim during a swimming advisory, avoid dunking your head or swallowing the water.
The town will be posting the signage, and notifying residents when the advisory is lifted.
