Because of the current high COVID-19 community level in Teton County (Wyoming), Department of Interior policy requires that masks be required for everyone entering all park buildings within Grand Teton National Park, regardless of their vaccination status.
According to a press release, Park buildings include but aren’t limited to visitor centers, administrative offices, lodges, gift shops, and restaurants in the Grand Teton.
Current Department of Interior policy requiring masks are based on the CDC’s identified COVID-19 community level.
- HIGH: masks are required for everyone indoors in a federal building in Grand Teton National Park.
- MEDIUM and LOW: masks are optional indoors.
Visitors are also reminded to practice physical distancing by maintaining at least six feet of distance between themselves and others, washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using hand sanitizer, and covering their mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
Park visitors are also not advised to enter the park if they have symptoms or have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19.
The Department of the Interior COVID-19 Workplace Safety Plan serves as a framework for implementing the Presidential 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.
Grand Teton National Park expresses gratitude to guests for their patience and dedication to protecting its staff, visitors, and the community.
