Covid-19 Updates

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 two 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 enclosed public transportation and in healthcare settings on DOI lands. Additional mask requirements for fully vaccinated visitors vary by park based on local conditions.

Individuals looking to get COVID-19 vaccine can visit or text their zip code to 438829 to find a location close to them and make an appointment.
