NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – A swimming advisory for Sarah Constance Beach that was re-issued Thursday has been lifted Friday.

The advisory was in effect from First View Street to the Ocean View Fishing Pier, and from 6th View to 11th View streets.

Health officials said water samples taken Wednesday showed bacteria levels that exceeded state standards. Signs were posted to alert the public of the advisory, and they were removed Friday, when bacteria levels had decreased.

A swimming advisory was issued Tuesday for the same beach area in Norfolk, and lifted Wednesday. In Virginia Beach, a swimming advisory remains in place for part of the Oceanfront.
