The National Park Service is working to gradually increase access and services across all units of the National Park Service, including at Mount Rainier National Park. We are opening recreational access and services through a phased approach that aligns with guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local, state, and national opening plans. Due to COVID-19 related employee housing limitations and revenue reductions, the park is working with approximately half of its regular summer workforce. The health and safety of visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners remains our top priority. We are also working to ensure that our actions support local community public health objectives outside the park.
As our facilities reopen, please remember to recreate responsibly and work together to protect each other in the outdoors during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. We appreciate your patience and your support of the national parks.
