VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. —  The swim advisory put in place earlier this week along much of the Virginia Beach oceanfront was lifted Friday morning after water samples fell within state safety levels, Virginia Beach Environmental Health Manager  Dan Horne said.

“Swimmers should have no worries,” Horne said.

The swim advisory was issued Wednesday when bacteria levels in the water between 22nd Street to 70th Street exceeded State Water Quality Standards.

“In the world of bacteria, it was not a very large exceedance,” Horne said.  “The water naturally cleaned itself,” he added.
