Outdoors Public Health Advisory issued for ocean waters at Sunset Bay Public Health Advisory issued for ocean waters at Sunset Bay (Video)
Officials say water samples indicate higher-than-normal levels of fecal bacteria, which can result in diarrhea, stomach cramps, skin rashes, upper respiratory infections and other illnesses. Direct contact with the water – especially by children and the elderly, who may be more vulnerable to waterborne bacteria – should be avoided in this area until the advisory is lifted.
