On September 1st, the Department of Health recommended the closure of Atlantic Beach Club in Middletown, Conimicut Point Beach in Warwick, Easton’s Beach in Newport, and Oakland Beach in Warwick to swimming due to high bacteria counts.

Officials will continue to monitor the water quality and recommend re-opening when the areas are safe for swimming.

Water quality analysis is conducted by the State Health Laboratory or a state certified laboratory.

The What’sUpNewp Crew will update readers when the beaches are reopened.
