RIDOH Recommends Several Beach Closings

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends closing several beaches because of high bacteria levels:

- Third Beach and Peabody's Beach in Middletown

- Sandy Point Beach in Portsmouth

- City Park and Conimicut Beach in Warwick

- Kent County YMCA in Warwick

RIDOH will continue to monitor and review beach water quality through Labor Day. The status of a beach may change as new data become available. The most up-to-date beach information is available through a recorded message on RIDOH's beaches telephone line (401-222-2751). A list of closed beaches can also be accessed at https://health.ri.gov/data/beaches/
