Swimmers are advised to stay out of the water at Brevard County beaches, until tests confirm the water is safe after Hurricane Dorian.
The Florida Department of Health has issued a precautionary swim advisory for all public beaches in Brevard County.
Leaders say swimmers should assume there is an increased risk for illness or disease, until test results are ready.
