Leonard’s Beach Under Swim Advisory

PUBLIC ADVISORY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 12, 2019

Innisfil, ON – The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit has placed Leonard’s Beach under a swim advisory.

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, 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 .
