Because community transmission levels of Covid-19 are currently at the High level for Kern County, masks are required in the visitor center.

César E. Chávez National Monument remains committed to keeping visitors safe. Masks may be required in the visitor center when the CDC identifies that Kern County is at the High level for Covid transmission.
