  • HIGH: masks are required for everyone indoors in a federal building in Grand Teton National Park.
  • MEDIUM and LOW: masks are optional indoors.
  • Practice physical distancing by maintaining at least 6 feet of distance between you and others.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer. Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Do not travel if you have symptoms or have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19.
  • If you feel ill, seek medical attention and isolate yourself from other people.

The Department of the Interior COVID-19 Workplace Safety Plan serves as a framework for the implementation of the President’s Executive Order, Protecting the Federal Workforce and Requiring Mask-Wearing and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Memo 21-15 COVID-19 Safe Federal Workplace: Agency Model Safety Principles.

As conditions are subject to change, details and updates on park operations and masking requirements will be posted on the park’s website and social media channels.

The park would like to thank its visitors for their patience and commitment to protecting themselves, their staff, their visitors, and their community.
