Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Acadia
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 decision making and maintain consistency with CDC recommendations. These requirements are in place for everyone in Acadia National Park, regardless of vaccination status or local transmission.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the National Parks
This summer will be especially busy for many national parks. Make sure you’re ready for your visit by checking the park website to begin planning your trip. Public health measures are in place across the National Park System including capacity limits, entrance reservations, one-way trails and/or temporary closures in response to local conditions. While most of the 423 national parks are available to visitors, some may not have the ability to offer the level of service available before the pandemic. Check with individual park websites or download the NPS App for specific details about their operations, and please recreate responsibly.
