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 taken every step possible to ensure your safety, from check-in to check-out, including the addition of rigorous cleaning protocols, increasing the frequency of cleaning and placing hand sanitizing stations throughout the property.

We have implemented a flexible reservations policy and reservations can be changed or cancelled at no charge up to 48 hours before your scheduled arrival.

Gurney’s Newport, an expansive property, naturally allows for social distancing, and we encourage you to take advantage of the property grounds. 

Steps we've taken for our reopening include:

  • Self Parking
  • Hand sanitizing stations throughout the property
  • Arrival package inclusive of your room key, letter from your Resort Manager, and details on our in-room programming offerings
  • 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 50% capacity for indoor dining, reservations are recommended
  • Indoor pool will be by reservations only as time slot can be reserved at the spa 
  • Fitness center is open with limited capacity, please visit our spa for access 
  • The spa is open for a wide variety of services. Please call the spa at 401.851.3225 for more information.
  • If you wish your room not to be serviced by our Housekeeping Team, please place the "Do not Disturb" sign on your door.  We are happy to delivery extra towels or linen by request. 


Anyone traveling to Rhode Island from one of these states with a COVID-19 positivity rate higher than 5% must quarantine for 14 days and self-monitor for symptoms.

As an exception, you may provide proof of a negative result from a COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours prior to your arrival. This exception does not apply to international travelers.

Domestic travelers who receive a COVID-19 test during their quarantine period in Rhode Island and get a negative result can stop quarantining. However, you still need to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days, wear a mask any time you’re near people who don’t live with you, and follow physical distancing guidelines.

As a reminder, for all guests:  Face coverings must be worn in public—both indoors and outdoors—whenever six feet of social distance cannot be maintained. Exceptions are made for children under two years of age and anyone whose health would be negatively impacted by wearing a face covering.
