The Ministry of Health announced today (Thursday) a swimming warning at Neve Hof Beach in Rishon LeZion, following the detection of elevated levels of bacteria in seawater quality tests. This current swimming warning is added to the swimming warning that was published yesterday regarding Hofit Beach, Tel Yona Beach, Yeladim Beach, and the Separated Beach, which remains in effect until further notice.

Earlier today, the Ministry of Health announced the reopening of the Separated Beach in Haifa due to satisfactory water quality test results. This announcement comes after a week during which the beach was closed due to elevated results in seawater quality tests.

According to the Ministry of Health's announcement, following the receipt of satisfactory microbiological test results, the swimming advisory for the Shaket Beach has been lifted. The Ministry reminds that "swimming is permitted only in designated beaches."
