Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo announced several more reopenings at her daily Covid-19 briefing Monday:
- State beaches: Two Rhode Island state beaches will open Monday. East Matunuck State Beach and Scarborough State Beach will open for Memorial Day. While exact guidelines won’t be announced until later this week, Raimondo said to expect reduced parking, no lifeguards and closed bathrooms and changing rooms. Because amenities won’t be provided, these beaches will be free. All state beaches are expected to open in phase two of Rhode Island’s reopening.
- State parks: As of today, all state parks in Rhode Island are now open, Raimondo said.
- Places of worship: In-person faith services are expected to resume the weekend of May 30, Raimondo said. Exact guidelines will be announced between now and then.
