Swim advisories lifted for Orillia beaches
The swim advisories at Couchiching Beach and Moose Beach in Orillia have been lifted.
According to the city, officials received notice from the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit (SMDHU) on Monday that the advisory had been lifted.
The advisories were initially issued on Thursday, after a “higher than normal” bacteria count was found in the water.
A swimming advisory is issued when bacteria levels exceed those considered acceptable by the SMDHU.
According to the release, all three beaches in Orillia are open for swimming.
