Most of the thirteen Long Island beaches that were closed due to concerns about bacteria levels have been reopened, New York health officials have said.

The health department had ordered ten North Shore beaches and one on the South Shore to close on Saturday. Two beaches in Suffolk County were also closed. In Nassau County, all beaches except for Biltmore Beach in Massapequa were reopened on Sunday.

Health officials were worried that the heavy rains stemming from the leftovers of Hurricane Arthur would create a stormwater runoff. This, in turn, could sweep bacteria and deadly pathogens into nearby streams and bays, which could make them harmful for people to swim in. Not only that, but riptides generated from the hurricane could also be dangerous for swimmers, health officials have said.

For more information on beach closings and openings in Nassau County, call 516-227-9700.
