The Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH) recommends the closure of Atlantic Beach Club Beach in Middletown; Bristol Town Beach in Bristol; Conimicut Point Beach in Warwick; Fogland Beach in Tiverton; Grinell's Beach in Tiverton; and Warren Town Beach in Warren to swimming due to high bacteria counts.
Officials will continue to monitor the water quality at these beaches and will recommend re-opening them when they are safe for swimming. Water quality analysis is conducted by the HEALTH laboratory or a state certified laboratory.
