Two Door County beaches close ahead of holiday weekend

You will have two fewer places to cool off this weekend out of concern for your health.


The Door County Public Health Department announced Friday morning that the beaches at Frank Murphy County Park near Egg Harbor and Newport State Park in Ellison Bay are closed until further notice due to elevated bacteria counts when they were tested on Thursday. A third beach, located at Robert E. LaSalle County Park near the Town of Clay Banks, is also seeing elevated bacteria counts, but it is only under an advisory.


According to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, research has linked swimming in polluted waters with adverse human health effects such as sore throats, diarrhea, and various infections.
