ATLANTIC BEACH, N.C. — A North Carolina coastal town has lifted a boil water advisory which forced restaurants to shut down.
Local media outlets report the advisory issued on Friday for Atlantic Beach came after a sample showed E. coli in the water.
Motels and hotels were allowed to stay open as long as they notified guests, shut off water fountains and ice machines, and provide guests with bottled water and hand sanitizer. They also must discontinue continental breakfasts or provide pre-packaged meals.
