The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit has lifted the swim advisory for Port Sydney Beach.
The advisory, which is a warning to swimmers rather than a beach closure, was issued last week.
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. If you choose to swim during an advisory, avoid ducking your head or swallowing the water.
