The NPS is focused on ensuring employees, their families, volunteers and visitors are safe by following the most current guidance from the CDC, Office of Personnel Management, Office of Emergency Management, and other federal, state and local health authorities.
We encourage all visitors, particularly the most vulnerable, including the elderly and people with underlying conditions, to follow CDC guidance to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. These measures include following routine precautions like washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth; cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze; and most importantly, please stay home if you feel sick.
Lake Mead National Recreation Area, in response to Nevada Declaration of Emergency Directive 003 issued by the Governor of the State of Nevada, has implemented modifications to operations to support federal, state and local efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The park will continue to support visitor and resource protection.
The Superintendent has granted concessioners permission to allow tenants in their trailer villages and on live-aboard vessels in marinas to voluntarily shelter in place. The intent of this authorization is to accommodate tenants who prefer to remain at these locations for their health and safety during the pandemic. To request permission to shelter in place, tenants must contact their site managers. Managers also reserve the right to revoke this privilege, if they feel abuses are taking place.
