WYOMING — Mask wearing requirements are tightening in both Grand Teton National Park (GTNP) and Yellowstone National Park (YNP), according to recent announcements.

The changes are based on the latest CDC guidelines and are consistent across all National Park Service managed parks.

“All visitors regardless of vaccination status or community transmission levels, are required to wear a mask in crowded outdoor spaces and indoors, including, but not limited to, park visitor centers, administrative offices, lodges, gift shops, and restaurants. Masks are required for everyone on all forms of public and commercial transportation,” stated GTNP and YNP via Facebook.

At the end of July, both GTNP and YNP announced that regardless of vaccination status, visitors to Yellowstone are required to wear a mask indoors and in all public and commercial transportation.
