Germs and bacteria: they’re the last things we want to worry about when we head out for a day at the beach. That’s why Public Health monitors beach water quality daily during the summer months and it’s no easy task! We’re giving you a behind-the-scenes look at our Microbiology lab team and the work they do to keep beaches safe for swimming.
As Public Health was thrust into the spotlight over the past year and a half, you're probably aware of our role in a pandemic now. Learn how our everyday, non-pandemic work helps protect you, your family, and the environment.
