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.


The access to the park is as follows:

Open: Trails and Grounds, Entrance Road, Parking Lots, Restrooms at main parking lot, Gallatin House Visitor Center (9 am to 5 pm on the Weekends for the Winter)

Closed: Gallatin House Visitor Center during the Weekdays
