The Florida Department of Health warns everyone to stay away from water.
Collier County has swim advisories at all beaches due to bacteria in the water.
Walking along the beach is also unsafe as debris covers the sand.
Blake Chris was surfing Wednesday.
“We never surf in Naples, so whenever there are waves, we go out and have fun,” Chris said.
The Florida Department of Health said this should not be done.
Collier County beaches suffered serious damage after Ian, so don’t go into the water.
“This brought in bacteria and increased the amount of debris in our area. This debris is not only on the beach, but also in the sand and in the water,” said Christine, a spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Health in Collier County. Mr Hollingsworth said.
According to Hollingsworth, faeces have been found at very high levels on many different coastlines.
“We have staff who go out and test the water, but be aware that they only test for specific bacteria. Mr Ringsworth said.
Delnor-Wiggins State Park is littered like chairs with trash, debris and personal belongings.
Still, some people were walking on the beach.
Chris said he doesn’t worry about bacteria or viruses as long as he surfs.
“It’s windy, it’s cold, it’s really (abusive) waves. But here in Naples, whenever there’s a wave, there’s a wave,” Chris said.
Collier County is responsible for cleaning up the beach, and the city is responsible for repairing and cleaning beach access points.
The Florida Department of Health in Collier will continue to test water as long as it is safe.
Swimming precautionary recommendations remain in place until further notice.
