ALGOMA PUBLIC HEALTH

*************************
Test results of water samples collected on August 6, 2014 met the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care guidelines for safe swimming at Harmony Beach located on Harmony Beach Road.

Before swimming, take into consideration the past day’s weather and the current conditions of the beach.

The public is encouraged to visit the Beach Warnings section to view an interactive map of the beaches sampled and any current warnings or postings.

Swimming advisories do not close the beach or stop people from swimming.

They let swimmers know about the water conditions the day the sample was taken.

Swimming in water with high levels of E. coli can cause skin, eye, nose and throat infections, as well as stomach illness.

To reduce your risk:

• avoid swallowing beach water
• towel off after a swim
• shower when you get home from the beach
