A swim advisory has been recommended by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit (SMDHU) for Minets Point Beach due to elevated bacteriological results.
Samples were taken on Monday and re-sampling is scheduled to occur Tuesday afternoon, with results expected Wednesday afternoon.   
According to the health unit, water quality can change daily or even hourly depending on the weather and other conditions. Swimmers are encouraged to make smart decisions about beach-water quality before swimming.
Water quality at designated public beaches is tested regularly for bacteria. However, due to the delay in receiving lab results, beachgoers cannot rely on only lab results to know if it is safe to swim. Swimmers are advised to consider a number of factors before going in the water, such as rain, wind, the presence of waterfowl, wet sand and shallow water.
