(Portland, OR) - The Oregon Health Authority is expanding a health advisory issued last month. Officials are now warning people about toxic algae blooms not just in the Willamette River near Cathedral Park, but also in an area upstream to Willamette Cove. The agency says people should avoid swimming, boating, and fishing in the water where the blooms are present. They also advise everyone to keep their kids and pets away due to health risks.
