A whole host of Sarasota County beaches are under no swim advisories after water testing on Monday found a high amount of enterococcus bacteria.

Beaches from Longboat Key to Venice and in all points in between are affected- 12 beaches in all.

Although swimmers would be told to stay out of the water anyway due to Hurricane Michael, the water quality issues are yet another reason to keep out of the Gulf this week.

More water testing is set to be done later today.
