MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. (SNN TV) – The precautionary swimming warning for Manatee County’s public beaches has been lifted.

The Florida Department of Health in Manatee County originally issued the recommendation for the county’s beaches due to water quality issues related to Hurricane Idalia. It was previously reported that test results on the water quality of the beaches would not be available until Tuesday.

However, Manatee County spokesman Bill Logan sent a news release on Sunday stating that the precautionary measures were lifted.

There is one exception: a bathing ban has been issued for Palma Sola South off State Road 64 near Palma Sola Bay in Manatee County.

A no-swim warning is issued when enterococci bacteria levels exceed federal guidelines for safe swimming. Contact with the water at the construction site could make you ill.
