Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The Minnesota Department of Health has issued a no-water contact advisory for a Duluth beach.

The Lafeyette Community Club Beach located on the lakeside of Park Point in Duluth, was sampled on Thursday and elevated E-coli bacteria levels were found.

The elevated levels indicate the possible presence of fecal contamination.

The beach is scheduled to be resampled on Friday.

The Health Department is advising anyone who becomes sick after contact with the beach water, to contact them.
