The NPS continues to monitor and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, following guidance from the CDC, Safer Federal Workforce Task Force, and DOI, and working with the NPS Office of Public Health to use the latest science to guide our decision making.
According to the CDC, risks of severe disease, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19 have been greatly reduced by increased vaccination levels and population immunity as well as the wide availability of treatments. Additional prevention strategies, including testing, are effective ways to keep you and your loved ones safe.
NPS ongoing masking guidance is based on the CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels tool, which helps communities decide what prevention steps to take. In areas the CDC identifies as high COVID-19 community level, masks are required for everyone in all NPS buildings regardless of vaccination status. In most low and medium COVID-19 community level areas, masks are optional in NPS buildings, but visitors should follow signs and instructions from park staff and volunteers. Masks are required on all forms of enclosed government-operated transportation. In situations where masks are not required, visitors and employees are always welcome to wear one if it makes them more comfortable.
Gettysburg National Military Park
Comfort Stations located throughout the park are open for visitors during regular park hours.
As the National Park Service monitors and responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, we work closely with the NPS Office of Public Health to use the latest science to guide our decision making. Consistent with CDC recommendations, people who are not fully vaccinated (less than 2 weeks past your final dose) must continue to wear masks indoors and in crowded outdoor spaces. All people, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a mask on all forms of public transportation and in healthcare settings on DOI lands.
