GLYNN COUNTY, GA – The Glynn County Health Department has lifted the advisory for
Driftwood Beach, which is from Beach KM marker 1 to Tallu Fish Lane on Jekyll Island.
The advisory was issued on October 6, 2020 after routine water quality tests showed a high
level of enterococci bacteria which increase the risk of gastrointestinal illness in swimmers.
Subsequent water samples show the bacteria level has dropped below the Environmental
Protection Agency’s recommended limits. Therefore, the advisory has been lifted.
