Swim advisories issued for some beaches in Barrie

The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit has posted swim advisories at Centennial Beach as well as Minet’s Point Beach in Barrie.

The water was tested on Monday June 22nd, and was re-tested again on Wednesday June 23rd and an update will be provided.

During a swim advisory, signs will indicate recent water samples show bacteria levels that may increase risk of developing minor skin, eye, ear, nose or throat infections or stomach illness.

If you choose to swim during an advisory, health officials recommend you avoid dunking your head or swallowing the water.
