Beaches in Sarasota County have “no swim” advisories.
The Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County has issued them for Longboat Key, the North Jetty Beach in Venice, Nokomis Beach, and two Siesta Key beaches.
These advisories have resulted from high levels of bacteria in these waters.
The beaches, however, remain open.
