Sarasota County health officials have issued a "No Swim" advisory for the following beaches: Longboat Key Beach, North Lido Beach, Lido Casino Beach, South Lido Beach, Siesta Key Beach, Turtle Beach, Nokomis Beach, North Jetty Beach, Service Club Beach, Venice Pier Beach, Brohard Park Beach, Manasota Key Beach and Casperson Beach. The amount of enterococcus bacteria found during water quality testing on Monday was outside acceptable limits. The beaches remain open, however, wading, swimming and water recreation is not recommended as long as there is an advisory in place. Due to the weather effects from Hurricane Michael the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County will not conduct the next round of testing until seas are forecast to be 3 feet or less and there is a lower risk for rip currents.
