CURRITUCK CO, NC -- Bacteria levels are back to normal ranges in the ocean-side water in Currituck County.

Health officials on Thursday lifted an alert against swimming in waters at the ocean-side of Corolla Village Road near the lighthouse in Corolla.

People swimming or playing in waters with bacteria levels higher than the standards have an increased risk of developing gastrointestinal illness or skin infections.
