TORONTO – Multiple Toronto beaches are closed this weekend due to high levels of E. coli in the water.
Toronto Public Health reported on Saturday that Sunnyside, Cherry and Marie Curtis beaches are unsafe to swim in.
The closures come as temperatures drop to the high 20s in the city, which had previously been under a heat warning.
Health officials say exposure to E. coli presents a greater risk of nose, throat, ear, skin infection as well as other conditions.
They say that these areas are still safe for picnics and other activities.
