The National Park Service (NPS) is working service-wide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local public health authorities, access to Nez Perce National Historical Park is as follows:
While the listed areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased, and services may be limited. Consistent with CDC recommendations, people who are not yet fully vaccinated must continue to wear masks indoors and in crowded outdoor spaces. The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. 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.
Air QualityOver the last 30 years air quality has improved significantly in national parks and across the U.S. This is great news because parks need clean air. It is essential for the health of our visitors and employees, clean clear views of park scenery, and a healthy natural environment. But we also know that almost all national parks are still affected by air pollution. One way you can keep up with the changing air quality at Nez Perce National Historical Park is by monitoring the conditions, so that they don’t impact your visit.
