Health officials extend Long Beach boil water alert into Monday

Posted: Updated:
LONG BEACH -

The Long Beach boil water order will stay into effect until at least Monday.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo sent another 85,000 bottles of water to Long Beach residents Sunday.

Routine testing Friday found traces of E. coli in the water.

Since then, the city's more than 30,000 residents and the tens of thousands of visitors in town for the pride festival, have been directed to boil water for things like drinking and brushing their teeth.

So far, no one has gotten sick.

Officials are expected to give an update Monday.
