Park buildings include, but are not 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. For more information on COVID-19 in the local park area, please see Teton County Health Department.
- HIGH: masks are required for everyone indoors in a federal building in Grand Teton National Park.
