Schubert Beach in Smithtown is closed to bathing due to the finding of bacteria at levels in excess of acceptable criteria.

Nissequogue Point Beach Club in Nissequogue and Benjamins Beach in Bay Shore, which closed over the weekend, as well as Tanner Park Beach in Copiague remain closed.

Beaches will reopen when further testing reveals that the bacteria have subsided to acceptable levels.

According to Suffolk County Commissioner of Health Dr. James Tomarken, bathing in bacteria-contaminated water can result in gastrointestinal illness, as well as infections of the eyes, ears, nose, and throat.

For the latest information on affected beaches, call the Bathing Beach HOTLINE at 852-5822 or contact the Department's Office of Ecology at 852-5760 during normal business hours. http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/Departments/HealthServices/EnvironmentalQuality/Ecology/BeachMonitoringProgram.aspx
