Town officials in Stratford closed a beach on Wednesday due to high bacteria counts.

They posted to the town's website that Short Beach will be closed until Thursday.

Officials said the next round of sampling will be available by mid-afternoon on Wednesday.

At that point, they said they'll make a determination about whether or not to reopen the beach.
