By Jim McCoy Fri 11th July Newshealth advisoriesOregon coast
The Oregon Health Authority has issued health advisories for two state beaches, citing tests indicating fecal bacteria. The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/vWSpUE ) the advisories target D River Beach in Lincoln County and Heceta Beach in Lane County. Contact with fecal bacteria can lead to diarrhea, stomach cramps, rashes, respiratory infections and other ailments. Officials say people should avoid contact with water at those beaches until the advisory is lifted. Other recreational activities are OK at the beaches. These advisories come one day after advisories were lifted for Harris Beach and Mill Beach in Curry County.
