Newport Aquarium will begin a Phased Reopening on June 22.
Newport Aquarium will reopen June 22, starting with 3 appreciation days exclusively for Annual Passholders from June 22 – 24. Starting June 25, all guests are welcome!
During this unprecedented time, The Aquarium is implementing a number of new safety measures based on the guidance of health officials including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and appropriate government agencies in response to Covid-19.
The safeguards will be as follows:
Daily capacity will be limited – Annual Passholder Reservations are required for a specific visit date and entry time.
Face masks or face coverings are required for all visitors ages 3 and up. Employees will wear face masks.
Temperature screenings will be taken prior to entry. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or more and anyone traveling in the same vehicle with them will not be able to enter.
Capacities in Sharky’s Cafe will be limited to allow guests to have more space.
Physical distancing measures have been put in place including physically distanced queues, marked barriers and social distancing reminders.
Areas where social distancing can’t be achieved will be temporarily closed including interactive, play areas and some animal encounters.
Additional sanitation measures have been implemented. This includes high touch point areas being cleaned more frequently and providing additional hand sanitizing locations.
