The Muskoka District Health Unit has issued a swim advisory for Gull Lake Park Beach in Gravenhurst.

Samples collected from the beach are exceeding the provincial standard for E. Coli in the water.

During a swimming advisory, the beach is posted with warning signs indicating the most recent water samples and bacteria rate.

These rates may increase the risk of developing minor skin, eye, ear, nose or throat infections or stomach illnesses.

The Health Unit says that if you choose to swim during an advisory, avoid dunking your head o swallowing the water.
