NEWS RELEASE
TOWN OF INNISFIL
*************************
The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit has placed Beaches 2-5 at Innisfil Beach Park (676 Innisfil Beach Rd.) under a swimming advisory, based on water samples collected on Aug. 8.

An advisory is a warning to swimmers, but it is not a beach closure. During an advisory, a beach is posted with warning signs when the water contains levels of bacteria that indicate there may be an increased risk of developing minor skin, eye, ear, nose and throat infections and stomach disorders.

You may still choose to swim during an advisory but it may be best to avoid swallowing the water, and ducking or dunking your head underwater.

Testing is done at least weekly by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, and the results are listed on their website.
