Rockaway Beach - e. coli

15:00 Jul 16 2016 Rockaway Beach, Tillamook County, Oregon, 97136, USA

A few days after swimming at Rockaway Beach on July 16, 2016 I started experiencing the symptoms of a UTI. I went to the doctor and my urine culture tested positive for e. coli. I just saw the water quality warning for Rockaway Beach today (Aug 9), so now it makes more sense where my infection possibly came from.
