The staff of the Bayfront Park Beach found blue-green algae in most of the water in the park along the western shoreline. According to the Public Health Officials of the area, tests have revealed that the algae are toxic.
Residents and the public who may choose to spend time in the Park have been urged to stay out of the water. At Kalsi & Associates, we call upon everyone to observe this decree. Coming into contact with the toxins from the algae can irritate your skin.
Other effects of exposure to the toxins include diarrhea, irritation of the mucous membrane, abdominal pain, headaches, rashes, among many other irritable effects. Health officials encourage those who may have come into contact with the water at the Park in the recent times and having any of the mentioned symptoms to seek medical attention.
As we opt to spend time with family and friends in the Parks, let us observe the rules of the parks and put our safety and good health as our number one priority. Your safety begins with you and me.
