Anne Arundel County health authorities on Friday ended an advisory for people to stay out of the water at three beaches or recreational areas because of high bacteria levels.

Herald Harbor, located in Crownsville on the Severn River, was one of the areas. The other two, both on the Magothy River, were Lake Claire in Cape St. Claire and Magothy Manor in Arnold. All three areas now have acceptable bacteria levels, samples showed.

However, people were urged not to swim, ski or have direct contact with the water at Glen Isle in Riva, on the South River. Glen Isle has had a swim warning since June 13.
