During this COVID-19 pandemic, the health and wellness of our visitors, employees, partners, and communities are of the utmost concern. The National Park Service (NPS) continues to work service wide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and is using a phased approach to safely increase access on a park-by-park basis.

The National Park Service respects your choice, whatever that may be, and we ask our community members and visitors to extend this same level of respect towards others , even if their choices are different from your own.
We will continue to monitor vity and county guidelines regarding COVID-19 and will keep our community and visitors informed of any changes.
Staying Safe in Your Parks
The health and safety of those who visit and work in national parks continues to be paramount, which is why we ask visitors to be our partner in adopting social distancing practices. The CDC has offered guidance to help prevent the spread of infectious diseases while enjoying the outdoors.
Park rangers remain on duty to protect visitors and resources and uphold normal regulations. When recreating, the public is encouraged to follow local area health orders, practice Leave No Trace principles, social distance and avoid high-risk outdoor activities.
We are also encouraging visitors to find their virtual park! Explore Pearl Harbor National Memorial from the comfort of anywhere in the world through our YouTube Channel, the PERL Facebook page, and the Learn About The Park section of this website. You can also learn more through our non-profit partner in education, Pacific Historic Parks and their History Talks Series.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Park Service encourages all visitors to help keep parks and communities safe by recreating responsibly when visiting your National Parks. For tips on how to recreate responsibly please see the infographic below or visit the NPS Recreate Responsibly Webpage. We're all in this together, mahalo (thank you) for your kōkua (help).
