SUFFOLK COUNTY — The Suffolk County Department of Health Services issued an advisory against beachgoers bathing in over 60 beaches due to potentially high bacteria levels.

The advisory was issued based on the chance that the bacteria levels present may exceed New York State standards due to heavy rainfall earlier this week.

The department recommends that bathing and other water contact be suspended in affected areas.

The advisory is expected to be lifted Sunday morning unless sampling finds elevated bacterial numbers persisting.
