NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) _ Health officials in Rhode Island have closed another beach to swimming because of bacteria in the water.
The state's Department of Health on Thursday said Fort Adams State Park Beach in Newport is considered unsuitable for swimming until further notice.
The state has already closed Narragansett Town Beach, North Kingstown Town Beach, Barrington Town Beach, Conimicut Point Beach, Goddard Memorial State Park Beach, City Park Beach and Oakland Beach in Warwick.
The beaches will be reopened to swimming after water quality tests find a safe level of bacteria.
The health department routinely monitors water quality at the state's public beaches throughout the summer months.
