MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Department of Public Health officials say two portions of Mobile Bay have been reopened for oyster harvesting.

Officials said in a statement that areas one and three of the bay, which includes Heron Bay, were reopened at noon on Monday.

The Alabama Department of Public Health had closed all shellfish growing areas in Mobile and Baldwin counties in late February.

Officials said the closure was prompted by potential bacterial contamination of oyster beds during heavy rainfall.
