MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A swimming advisory has been issued for several beach locations in Miami-Dade County.

The Florida Department of Health issued the advisory Thursday after samples of beach water collected at each location did not meet recreational water quality standard for enterococci.

Advisories were issued at the following beaches:

  • Crandon North Beach
  • Virginia Key Beach
  • Key Biscayne Beach Club
  • Cape Florida
  • Surfside 93rd Street Beach

Officials are recommending that nobody swim in these areas as the water may pose an increased risk of illness.
