The National Park Service follows CDC guidance to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Check locally and in the park app and social media for updates and changes in park operations. Thank you for helping to keep yourself and others safe and healthy.
For Current COVID-19 community level of Waco Mammoth National Monument see below.
The NPS has updated its masking guidance based on the CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels tool, which helps communities decide what prevention steps to take. Masking requirements will vary by park based on local conditions, however masks are still required on all forms of enclosed public transportation. In areas CDC identifies as high COVID-19 community level, masks are required for everyone in all NPS buildings, regardless of vaccination status. In most low and medium COVID-19 community level areas, masks are optional, and you are welcome to wear a mask if it makes you more comfortable. Additional details are available at www.nps.gov/coronavirus
Summer in Texas can be hot. June, July, and August temperatures can reach well over 100 degrees. Drink plenty of water, wear a hat and sunscreen, and take it easy.
