While some beaches in Midland and Barrie have had swimming advisories in effect for a while, a few beaches closer to home have been added to the list.
Several beaches in Tiny Township, including Concession 16 West Beach, Concession 2 West Lawson Road Beach and Concession 10 West Balm Beach now have swimming advisories in effect.
The advisories are issued by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, and mean that there’s higher bacterial levels in the water, so it’s best not to drink the water or dunk your head under. Swimming could lead to minor infections or stomach disorders.
