Signs warning about bacteria levels at Little Corona Beach were removed Friday, officials said.

On Thursday, the Orange County Health Care Agency posted signs on a 500-foot stretch, warning beachgoers of bacteria levels that exceeded health standards, according to a press release from the agency.

The Orange County Health Care Agency routinely tests the area for indicators of disease-causing bacteria.

It was unclear what caused the elevated levels.
