Covid-19 Updates


As the NPS 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. To protect the health of those who live, work, and visit America’s national parks, face masks are required in all NPS buildings and facilities. Masks are also required on NPS-managed lands when physical distancing cannot be maintained, including narrow or busy trails, overlooks, and historic homes. Additional public health measures are in place across the National Park System, from capacity limits to one-way trails or temporary closures in response to local conditions.

The content and links on this page will provide visitors, and community members alike, with the necessary information to stay informed and up-to-date on current conditions at Gettysburg NMP, Eisenhower NHS, and the local Gettysburg and Adams County areas.

The National Park Service (NPS) is working service-wide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Coronavirus (Covid-19) protocols and the State of Pennsylvania Red/Yellow/Green phase protocols. As of June 12, 2020, we are at the GREEN phase for the State of Pennsylvania.
