Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks are further modifying operations to implement latest health guidance
Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks are announcing modifications to operations at the request of local county health officers from Park County, Wyoming, Park County, Montana, Teton County, Wyoming, and Gallatin County, Montana. The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers and partners is our No. 1 priority. The National Park Service (NPS) is working servicewide with federal, state and local authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The National Park Service listened to the concerns from our local partners and, based on current health guidance, temporarily closed the parks,” said Yellowstone Superintendent Cam Sholly and Grand Teton Acting Superintendent Gopaul Noojibail. “We are committed to continued close coordination with our state and local partners as we progress through this closure period and are prepared when the timing is right to reopen as quickly and safely as possible.”
