Health Unit Shuts Down Sand Point Beach

The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit has closed Sand Point Beach.

The health unit shut down the popular beach in the city's east-end after sampling data tests exceeded e-coli bacteria counts.

Swimming is also not recommended at Cedar Beach, Colchester Beach and West Belle River Beach.

The health unit says it's still waiting on sampling tests for Seacliff Beach in Leamington.

The five other local beaches are suitable for swimming.

The tests were done on Tuesday.
