Protecting against COVID-19
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Park Service has worked closely with public health officials to use the best science to guide our decision making. Operations at Mesa Verde look a little different this year. We thank you for your understanding and flexibility as we all continue to do our best to protect ourselves and our communities. For more information, please check the NPS Public Health Site.

In Montezuma County, Colorado, community level is LOW

People may choose to mask at any time. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.

Road Work
Road work will be active throughout the park this season. Please allow extra time to reach your destination, drive slowly, and be alert to workers and heavy equipment.

Winter Storm Conditions
Winter storm conditions occasionally force the closure of the park road until ploughing operations can be safely completed. Winter storms are possible beween September and May, but are most frequent December through March. Please check Mesa Verde's Facebook page for the most up-to-date information on road conditions and temporary closures.
