The National Park Service (NPS) works closely with the NPS Office of Public Health to use the latest science to guide our decision making around the COVID-19 pandemic.  The CDC has offered guidance to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.

When Newton County’s COVID Community Level is "high" according to the CDC, masks are required inside buildings at George Washington Carver National Monument, regardless of vaccination status, for employees, partners, concessionaires, and visitors entering federal buildings. When the mask mandate is in effect, we will have paper surgical masks available for staff and the public. When Newton County’s COVID community level is medium or low, masks will still be available but will not be required.
