Three Nassau beaches -- Biltmore and Philip Healey in Massapequa and Morgan beach in Glen Cove -- remained closed on Saturday because of elevated levels of bacteria, according to the county's Department of Health.

Biltmore and Philip Healey beaches have been closed since July 9 while Saturday was the first day Morgan has been closed.

The rest of the county's beaches that are operating during the 2014 season are open, the department said.
