NEWPORT, R.I. (Friday, July 31, 2020) – Ahead of what would have normally been one of the busiest weekends of the summer, the City of Newport is again taking steps to increase its COVID-19 related enforcement measures.
Historically, the last weekend in July has marked the kickoff to the Newport Folk and Jazz Festivals, with the City welcoming tens of thousands of music fans to historic Fort Adams and Newport Harbor. And while this year’s festivals have gone virtual, City officials are still preparing for an influx of visitors that is expected to quickly fill up the City’s downtown shopping district, harbor, and beaches.
