Vancouver Coastal Health has issued a swimming advisory for Kitsilano Beach and Kits Point due to high levels of bacteria in the water.
Swimming and wading are also not recommended at Sunset Beach.
High levels of E. coli bacteria in the water increase risk of gastro-intestinal illness to swimmers. Vancouver Coastal Health is working to monitor the water quality and remove the swimming advisory once the levels have decreased.
E. coli counts for the Vancouver-area beaches are updated every Friday, based on sampling results.
