Gurney's Newport

COVID-19 Response

Gurney’s Resorts most important consideration is the health and well-being of our community, and as the COVID-19 situation evolves, we continue to update our policies and procedures with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

We have implemented a flexible reservations policy and reservations can be changed or cancelled at no charge up to 7 days before your scheduled arrival.

  • Complimentary mask and sanitation wipes available
  • In-room programming including expanded in-room dining menus  
  • Robust room service and grab-and-go menus
  • Utilization of additional outdoor spaces throughout the resort
  • Restaurants are now open for outdoor dining and full capacity for indoor dining, reservations are recommended

TRAVEL ADVISORY

If you're traveling to Rhode Island from a location within the United States (US) or US territories, you’re not currently required to quarantine or get tested after arrival whether or not you're vaccinated. 

To lower the chances of catching and spreading COVID-19, the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends all travelers follow quarantine and testing guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • If you’re not yet fully vaccinated, get tested with a viral COVID-19 test 3-5 days after travel within the US and US territories and stay home and quarantine for a full 7 days after travel.
    • Even if your test result is negative, stay home and quarantine for 7 days.
    • If your test result is positive, isolate at home away from others
    • If you don’t get tested, stay home and quarantine for 10 days after travel.
    • Whether or not you get tested, avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness for 14 days after travel.
  • If you’re fully vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days, you do not need to get tested or quarantine after arrival in Rhode Island.
    • You're fully vaccinated if you’ve gotten all recommended doses of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or World Health Organization (WHO) and more than 14 days have passed since the final dose.

Always watch for symptoms for 14 days after travel. If you develop symptomsisolate at home away from others and get tested right away. 

If you've tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 90 days and completed your isolation period, RIDOH recommends that you carry proof of your positive COVID-19 test result when you travel. The 90-day period starts on the day of symptom onset or the day of your positive test if you were asymptomatic (day 0). You do not need a negative test result to return or travel to Rhode Island. You are also not required to retest or quarantine unless you begin to have or still have symptoms. 

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requires all air passengers arriving in the United States (US) from any foreign country to provide a negative COVID-19 test result from no more than 3 days before travel or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past 3 months before boarding a flight to the US.

If you're traveling to Rhode Island from a location outside the US or US territories, you’re not currently required to quarantine or get tested after arrival whether or not you're vaccinated

As a reminder, for all guests:

If you're not fully vaccinated, RIDOH also recommends that you continue to wear a mask indoors near anyone you don't live with and outdoors in crowded places or during activities where you’re in close contact with other people who are not fully vaccinated. Close contact means you’ve been within six feet of someone with COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more in a 24-hour period.

You're fully vaccinated if you’ve gotten all recommended doses of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or World Health Organization (WHO) and more than 14 days have passed since the final dose.
