RIDOH recommends no swimming at four beaches as high heat continues Thursday

As the high heat and humidity continue Thursday and an Air Quality Alert is issued, the Rhode Island Department of Health is recommending no swimming at four beaches in Rhode Island.

  1. Grinnell’s Beach in Tiverton
  2. Fogland Beach in Tiverton
  3. Bonnet Shores Beach in Narragansett,
  4. Kent County YMCA Lower Pond in Warwick

RIDOH recommends you don’t swim at these four beaches until further notice due to high bacteria counts.

RIDOH officials will continue to monitor and review beach water quality through Labor Day, according to a spokesperson.

The status of a beach may change.

The most up-to-date beach information is available through a recorded message on RIDOH’s beaches telephone line (401-222-2751).
