Following guidance from the CDC and recommendations from state and local public health authorities in consultation with NPS Public Health Service officers, César E. Chávez National Monument’s visitor center is temporarily closed. It is still possible to visit the Memorial Garden and gravesite, though there are no restrooms available to the public.
The health and safety of staff and visitors in monument facilities is our number one priority. We are working with the NPS Office of Public Health and the US Public Health Service to closely monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. In the meantime, we continue to remind our visitors to follow the CDC's guidance, or federal government information in English or in Spanish to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, including maintaining social distancing, covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, and staying home if you feel sick.
If you do choose to visit, check this website for trip-planning information before you arrive, and look for monument brochures near the entrance to the Memorial Garden.
