MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – City officials said late Thursday that at least two Minneapolis beaches are closed after signs of E. coli were found.

Officials said the 32nd Beach at Lake Calhoun was closed on Monday after enough E. coli bacteria was found to put the general public at risk. The beach was reopened after Thursday’s latest test results showed E. coli levels were safe.

The Hiawatha Beach was also closed because of E. coli concerns.

Officials said all other beaches in the city of Minneapolis are still open for swimming and other outdoor activities.

Late last week, it was revealed that three young adults got E. coli on the Fourth of July after being in the water at Big Island on Lake Minnetonka.
