VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Virginia Beach health officials have lifted a ban on swimming and wading in a section of the Chesapeake Bay.
The city's Department of Public Health issued a swimming and wading advisory Wednesday for the bay between Ocean View Avenue and Rockbridge Road because bacteria levels exceeded state water quality standards.
The department said Thursday that bacteria levels have dropped and now meet the state standards.
