Second Huntington Beach Closed to Bathing

Fleets Cove Beach in Huntington is closed to bathing due to the finding of bacteria at levels in excess of acceptable criteria. Gold Star Battalion Beach in Huntington, which closed on June 2, 2022, remains closed.           

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

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

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.
