Posted On Tuesday August 13, 2019

Swim Advisory - Gull Lake Rotary Park Beach

 

Gravenhurst, ON - Based on beach water samples collected on Monday August 12, the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit is recommending that Gull Lake Rotary Park Beach be posted with swim advisory signs due to elevated levels of E. coli.

The Town will be providing modified swimming lessons at Gull Lake Beach and be in contact with all participants should there be further changes to the schedule.

During a swimming advisory, the beach is posted with warning signs that 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.

For additional information on beach water testing, please visit the SMDHU website www.simcoemuskokahealth.org/Topics/SafeWater/BeachWater/BeachPostings  

The Town will continue to communicate with the public as new updates become available.
