A beach closure notice is in effect for Brissette Beach in Bay County. The Bay County Health Department issued the notice on Thursday, June 13 after testing of water samples showed higher levels of bacteria than allowed by state water quality standards. That means the water is not safe for full body contact recreational activities, such as swimming. The closure will be lifted after testing shows the water is again in compliance.
The closure notice comes after another notice for South Linwood Beach was lifted on Thursday.
