UPDATE:

The health advisory has been lifted at all four beaches after new tests showed 'good' water quality, according to the Florida Department of Health.

PREVIOUS STORY:

Four Palm Beach County beaches are closed to swimming because of elevated levels of bacteria in the water.

According to the Florida Department of Health, the following beaches have poor water quality, based on recent tests:

  • Dubois Park in Jupiter
  • Kreusler Park in Lake Worth Beach
  • Ocean Inlet Park in Ocean Ridge
  • Lantana Beach

Beachgoers are urged not to swim at those locations until further notice.

Health officials will retest the water, and once the bacteria levels fall into an acceptable range, the advisory will be lifted.
