VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - A swimming and wading advisory was lifted Thursday for two locations on the Chesapeake Bay. The Virginia Beach Department of Public Health issued the advisory Wednesday for the areas between Ocean View Avenue (5000 block) and Mortons Road, as well as between Rockbridge Road and Starfish Road.
Health Department tests showed high bacteria levels in the water, but it is now safe for people to enter these areas of the bay.
Signs alerting the public about the advisory have been removed.
The advisory did not impact the Virginia Beach Oceanfront and resort area.
A routine traffic stop in Chesapeake resulted in a three-city pursuit Friday morning.
Wet weather is expected to move into the area over the weekend, forcing some areas to cancel or change their holiday events.
Four vehicles were involved in a crash on Route 17 in Gloucester Friday morning.
