VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - Virginia Beach health officials have banned swimming and wading in a section of the Chesapeake Bay due to high bacteria levels.
 
The city's Department of Public Health issued a swimming and wading advisory Wednesday for the bay between Ocean View Avenue and Rockbridge Road.
 
The department says recent tests show bacteria levels in the water exceed state water quality standards.
 
The ban doesn't apply to the oceanfront and resort areas.
