The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends closing Kent County YMCA Lower Pond beach in Warwick and Camp Hoffman Beach in Kingston for swimming because of high bacteria counts. Camp Grosvenor beach in North Kingstown remains closed for swimming.
RIDOH will continue to monitor and review beach water quality regularly to ensure safe bathing throughout the summer season. The status of a beach may change on a daily basis. The most up-to-date beach information is available through a recorded message on RIDOH's beaches telephone line (401-222-2751).
