Don't Go in the Water!
Chesapeake Bay Bacteria Closes Beach
UPDATE: The ban has been lifted.
Swimming and wading in a section of the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia Beach are prohibited because of high levels of bacteria.
The ban covers the bay between Mortons Road and Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek. It will remain in effect until the
water quality meets state standards, officials said.
The Virginia Beach oceanfront and resort area are NOT affected by the ban.
