Covid-19 Updates

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 our decision making.

The CDC has created a new measure called the COVID-19 Community Level (community level), which uses three data sets: new COVID-19 cases, new COVID-19 hospital admissions, and percent of beds occupied by COVID-19 patients. The community level gives a more robust picture of the impact of COVID-19 than looking at new COVID-19 cases alone, as we did previously.

The requirement for mask wearing in federal facilities depends on the community level.

LOW or MEDIUM: Mask wearing is not required for staff, visitors, or others, regardless of vaccination status.

HIGH: Mask wearing is required for all people indoors, regardless of vaccination status and consistent with CDC and Safer Federal Workforce Task Force guidance on mask wearing.
