RIDOH Recommends One Beach Opening and One Closure

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends reopening Camp Hoffman in Kingston for swimming because bacteria have returned to acceptable levels. RIDOH recommends no swimming at Camp Canonicus in Exeter because of high bacteria counts.

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 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).
