PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The Rhode Island Department of Health has reopened all of the state's beaches that were closed for high bacteria levels.

WPRI-TV reports the department cleared Conimicut Point Beach in Warwick, DiFonzo Recreational Area in Glocester, and South Kingstown's Larkin Pond Beach and Kingston Camp beach for swimming Tuesday after analyzing water samples. Officials say the bacteria levels in the water are within acceptable levels.

The department reopened Camp Hoffman Beach in Kingston and Goddard State Park Beach in Warwick on Saturday.

All of the beaches were closed for swimming following rainfall. Water sample results check for elevated bacteria levels that could harm swimmers.
