Health officials Sunday said an advisory against bathing at 41 Long Island beaches has been lifted.

The advisory went into effect Friday after heavy rainfall, which may have caused bacteria levels to exceed state standards.

The 18 beaches in Nassau and 23 in Suffolk counties are routinely affected by stormwater runoff from heavy rainfall that can impact water quality, according to health officials, who recommend suspending bathing and other water contact until the waters have been flushed by two successive tidal cycles.
