Zion National Park – Status = Soft OPEN  May 13

Updated May 1, 2020

Starting May 13, Zion National Park will begin providing Day Use recreational access to select areas within the park. This action supports the White House guidelines for Opening Up America Again, and our continued coordination with the State of Utah, southwest Utah elected leaders, park partners, and local businesses. We will provide more information in the days to come on what will be accessible on our park and local tourism websites. As we move forward, the health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners will guide our operational approach to examine each facility function and service and ensure those operations comply with current public health guidance. Visitor access will be limited to available parking in some areas.
Zion National Park makes every effort to keep you informed about news events, special events and new or ongoing projects. Check for current news releases, our park newspaper , or follow us on social media for the latest information.

Bryce Canyon National Park – Status = OPEN  

Updated: May 20, 2020

Following guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local public health authorities, Bryce Canyon National Park has been steadily increasing recreational access and services and will resume collecting fees this week. The success of this phased reopening has been in large part thanks to the cooperation of the visiting public, which helps the park to take further steps to increase recreational access and services.

Key Areas and Services that visitors currently have access to:

  • The main road and all viewpoints to Rainbow Point
  • Visitor Center and NHA bookstore: outdoor and indoor operations from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The theater and museum remain closed, and in accordance with regional public health guidance on group gatherings, indoor visitor occupancy will be limited for retail or restroom access only
  • In the Bryce Amphitheater area, restrooms are available at Sunset Point (24 hrs), Inspiration Point (24 hrs)
  • Along the southern Scenic Drive, restrooms are available at Farview and Rainbow Points (24 hrs)
  • Trails within the Bryce Amphitheater area (only the Navajo Loop remains closed)
  • Mossy Cave parking, restroom, and trail area (this area may temporarily close for short periods due to construction)
  • Guided horseback rides

 

Key Areas and Services planned to resume with anticipated dates:

  • Effective May 20th the park will resume collecting park entrance fees via traditional methods of credit card (preferred) and cash, or park pass; digital fee collection via recreation.gov is not yet available at Bryce Canyon, but will likely be announced soon as a preferred option
  • Effective May 22nd, the General Store will reopen its camp store and restrooms from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., however showers and laundry services will remain closed
  • Effective June 7th, Sunset Campground will reopen to the public for camping by reservation only—visit www.recreation.gov for reservation information
  • Effective June 15th, private horse use reservations will resume within the park
  • Effective no later than July 1st, hiking of backcountry trails and permits for backcountry camping at sites along these trails will again be permitted—park backcountry trails include the Riggs Spring Loop, the Under-the-Rim Trail, and Under-the-Rim connecting trails

Services and activities that do not yet have a date to resume:

  • All park food service
  • The park Lodge and its overnight accommodations
  • Park shuttle service
  • North Campground is currently closed for paving and will reopen for first-come-first-serve camping when this rehabilitation project is completed

 While these areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased and services may be limited. When recreating, the public should follow local area health orders, practice Leave No Trace principles, avoid crowding and avoid high-risk outdoor activities.

Here are a few tips for the visiting public to ensure your best experience when visiting Bryce Canyon National Park:

  • Visit the park during non-peak hours, either early morning or late afternoon/evening
  • The park’s Shared Use Path provides a fun way to walk or ride a bicycle from less busy parking lots such as those in Bryce Canyon City and near the Visitor Center to popular park overlooks and the Rim Trail
  • Avoid the park’s most popular overlooks at busy times by enjoying views along the Rim Trail, which provides endless vistas between Bryce Amphitheater viewpoints

 

Grand Canyon National Park – Status = South Rim to OPEN  May 15-18, 2020 / Tentative June 1, 2020 OPEN  for North Rim

Updated May 13, 2020

Following guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local public health authorities, Grand Canyon National Park is increasing recreational access to selected South Rim viewpoints. The National Park Service (NPS) is working servicewide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and using a phased approach to increase access on a park-by-park basis.

Grand Canyon National Park’s South Rim South Entrance will reopen May 15-18 for incoming traffic from 6-10 a.m. with limited day use access to:

  • The viewpoints at Pipe Creek Vista, Shoshone Point, Twin Overlooks, Duck on a Rock, Thor’s Hammer, No Name Point and Navajo Point along East Desert View Drive. Vehicles will be directed to turn around at Navajo Point.
  • The picnic areas near Shoshone Point Pavilion, east of Yaki Road, Thor’s Hammer and Buggeln Picnic area.
  • The restroom facilities located by the South Entrance Grand Canyon National Park sign, picnic area east of Yaki Road, Shoshone Point and Buggeln picnic area.

With public health in mind, the following facilities and areas remain closed to visitors at this time:

  • South Rim’s east entrance and Desert View area.
  • The Rim Trail, Greenway Trail system, inner canyon and all hiking trails.
  • Grand Canyon Village.
  • Center Road west from the South Entrance Road intersection; South Entrance Road north of Desert View Drive intersection; Yaki Point Road, Rowe Well Road and the USFS 310 Road.
  • The Colorado River, North Rim and Tuweep area.

Commercial services within the park remain closed. Visitors exploring the South Rim should plan to be self-sufficient, bringing enough food and water during their trip as well as hand sanitizer. The park also recommends arriving no later than 9-9:30 a.m. in case of traffic backups entering the park. Once visitors enter the park, they can stay throughout the day; however, there are no overnight accommodations available.

“This initial reopening phase will increase access to our public lands in a responsible way by offering the main feature of the park for the public, the view of the canyon, while reducing the potential exposure of COVID-19 to our nearly 2,500 residents,” said Grand Canyon National Park Superintendent Ed Keable.

The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners continues to be paramount. At Grand Canyon National Park, our operational approach will be to examine each facility function and service provided to ensure those operations comply with current public health guidance and will be regularly monitored. We continue to work closely with the NPS Office of Public Health using CDC guidance to ensure public and work spaces are safe and clean for visitors, employees, partners, and volunteers.

While these areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased and services may be limited. Currently, additional access is planned for visitors over Memorial Day weekend, which includes extending entrance station hours and access to more roads, hiking trails and viewpoints. Details will be provided when they’re available on our website.

As a reminder, visitors driving on U.S. Route 89 between Flagstaff or northern Arizona and Cameron will be travelling through the Navajo Nation, which requires face masks to be worn at public facilities and businesses to slow the spread of COVID-19. Also, the neighboring Havasupai reservation remains closed for tourism, and details for operational updates can be found on their website.

The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health. When recreating, the public should follow local area health orders, practice Leave No Trace principles, avoid crowding and avoid high-risk outdoor activities.

 

Details and updates on park operations will continue to be posted on our website at: https://www.nps.gov/grca/planyourvisit/grand-canyon-national-park-public-health-update.htm and social media channels. Updates about NPS operations will be posted on www.nps.gov/coronavirus.

 

Cedar Breaks National Monument – Status = Scenic Road which connects Utah SR 148 to SR 143, is OPEN  for the summer season

Updated May 13, 2020

In consideration of the health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners, visitor services and the opening of facilities, such as restrooms and the Information Center will coincide with the White House guidelines for Opening Up America Again and in coordination with the State of Utah, southwest Utah public health and elected leaders, and park partners.

All trails are currently closed due to snowdrifts, fallen trees and to protect park resources from damage. Parking lots are plowed but may have snow and mud in some areas, visitors are advised to use caution.  Point Supreme, Sunset View, Chessman Ridge, and North View overlooks are accessible for taking in views of the spectacular canyon.

Cedar Breaks National Monument would also like to remind the public that, heavy vehicles will be prohibited through the Monument. A heavy vehicle is defined as any vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating greater than 26000 lbs.  Road signs outlining the weight restriction are posted on all routes leading to the Monument to remind trucks and other heavy vehicles to use alternate routes.

  • All boat ramps at Antelope Point Marina are closed.
  • The North Wash Day Use Area remains closed (located near Hite, Utah).

“In coordination with Kane County Sheriff Tracy Glover and County Commissioners, we have determined we are unable to open the Lone Rock Primitive Beach Area for this weekend. I am extremely disappointed but we have had to accept that we are unable to safely manage this site to the degree needed and in anticipation of the crowds we expect over the holiday weekend. I really appreciate Kane County’s commitment to visitor safety and resource protection and look forward to resuming operations at Lone Rock in the near future. The date will be announced as soon as it is determined.”

The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners continues to be paramount. At Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, our operational approach will be to examine each facility function and service provided to ensure those operations comply with current public health guidance, and will be regularly monitored. We continue to work closely with the NPS Office of Public Health using CDC guidance to ensure public and workspaces are safe and clean for visitors, employees, partners, and volunteers.

PLEASE help us follow the first two directives and the third is what we are doing as a Team at Honey’s Marketplace to be safe. We are trying to be responsible citizens and support our political leaders to “protect lives and livelihoods.” Governor Herbert said that the “Utah Leads Together, https://coronavirus.utah.gov/utah-leads-together/ is a dynamic plan for a dynamic situation.” He encourages us to take this plan and “make it our own.” At Honey’s Marketplace we have made this plan our own, by making difficult changes to protect our families, our great Team and our Community. As a community we have done what the governor said to “apply grit and determination to power through this difficult time!” We are all in this together and together we are Kane County STRONG!! Thank YOU for your support in these TEMPORARY changes.

· Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays 7 a.m.- 8 a.m. for seniors 60 and over, the disabled, and immunocompromised customers. PLEASE respect these special hours for our at-risk community members.
· At this time we are NOT allowing reusable bags. This is only to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Please continue to recycle at home.
· At this time we are NOT accepting returns
· Be patient as the cashier properly cleans and sanitizes the station between transactions.
· Social distancing is important, so we are asking Honey’s Team and customers to maintain a six-foot distance from each other in the aisles and throughout the store.
· Continue to look for daily updated limits.
Thank you for your support as we focus on keeping you safe and providing all the necessities we can at this time.

At this time, we would ask everyone to remember that the supply chain has been hit hard. Manufacturers, warehouses and stores are doing their best to distribute to the customer. As customers respectfully shop and responsibly care for their food, we can get through this tough situation. Therefore, we will continue to set limits in-order to help supply our community. We appreciate your cooperation in this situation.

COVID-19 Update May 1st, 2020

The guidelines and restrictions put in place due to COVID-19 continue to evolve through the course of the pandemic.  The general social distancing strategy has remained the same but specific guidelines and requirements have changed.

Below is a simplified listing of all the various restrictions and guidelines along with their current timelines.  However, this should not be interpreted as a date that the guidelines and restrictions will have a definite termination date.  Any restriction or recommendation remains subject to change but these are the respective dates as they currently stand unless extended or suspended.

Over the next few weeks, as the Country, our State, and our local communities implement and continue to develop plans for the short term and long term re-opening of the economy, these guidelines are likely change on a weekly or even daily basis.  However, general guidelines for staying home if you are sick and maintaining good hygiene practices are not likely to change.

Federal Guidelines:

President Trump has issued federal guidelines to assist Governors across the nation as they look at loosening restrictions and slowly reopening more economic activity.  These guidelines are called the “Opening Up America Again Guidelines.” The Utah Leads Together 2.0 plan as discussed below follows most of the guidance found in the federal guidelines.  A full copy of the federal guidelines can be found here.  A summary can be found here.  However, to determine what is required you should not rely on these guidelines.  You should rely on the plan issued by the Governor.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has issued updated recommendations regarding masks.  Individuals who are required to engage in work or travel should now wear a cloth mask particularly in situations where social distancing is difficult.  In our community this would specifically include trips to the grocery store.  Medical grade N95 masks should still be reserved for medical providers.  You can find more information on all federal guidelines here.

State Guidelines and Restrictions:

The State of Utah has issued a long term plan to address the pandemic called Utah Leads Together.  The current version, Utah Leads Together 2.0 can be found here.  The plan includes a three phased approach beginning with the Urgent phase, then moving to the Stabilization phase (May through October), and then to the Recovery phase.  There are also color coded levels of risk with specific social distancing guidelines for individuals and businesses by industry. Red is for High Risk, Orange is for Moderate Risk, Yellow is for Low Risk and Green is for New Normal Risk.  A complete copy of these Phased Guidelines can be found here.

The Governor issued an executive order declaring that as of May 1, the State of Utah has officially transitioned from Red to Orange and into the Stabilization Phase.  This order is in effect until May 15. A summary of Orange guidelines for the General Public is set forth further below.  All of these guidelines are legally enforceable under the law other than the requirement for the general public to wear face coverings.  For the guidelines that apply to employers please review the Phased Guidelines for your specific industry.  Under Orange the following industries are allowed to open with severe social distancing restrictions in place: restaurants and other food service industry; retail, grocery, pharmacy, and other convenience stores; hotels and other hospitality businesses; events, cultural arts and other entertainment including sporting events, rodeos, convention centers, movie theaters, museums, and libraries; personal service including barbers, cosmetologists, tanning, etc.; and home repair.

Summary of Orange Guidelines for the General Public:

  • General public and employers take extreme precautions
  • Face coverings worn in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain
  • Follow strict hygiene standards, including:
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Use hand sanitizer frequently
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Cover coughs or sneezes (e.g. into a tissue, sleeve, or elbow; not hands)
  • Regularly clean high-touch surfaces (e.g. door handles, counters, light switches, remote controls, restroom surfaces)
  • Follow any other standards promulgated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Utah Department of Health, and local health department
  • Do not shake hands
  • In-person interactions in decreased group sizes that enable all social distancing guidelines to be maintained; social interactions in groups of 20 or fewer
  • Increase virtual interactions
  • Leave home infrequently, stay 6 feet away from others when outside the home
  • Regularly disinfect high-touch areas (e.g. door handles, buttons/switches, countertops, handrails, shopping carts, check-out counters, restroom surfaces)
  • Give sick family members their own room if possible and keep the door closed
  • Have only one family member care for the sick individual
  • Schools closed
  • Employees and volunteers of businesses operate remotely, unless not possible
  • Employers evaluate workforce strategy, concerns, and enact strategies to minimize economic impact
  • High-contact businesses can operate under strict protocols
  • Restaurants are open for dine-in services with strict requirements
  • Symptom checking in public and business interactions (checklist or verbal symptom checking)
  • Design spaces to maintain 6-foot distance between individuals
  • Limit out-of-state travel, quarantine 14 days upon return from high-risk areas as determined by the CDC, currently designated as most foreign countries but not domestic travel (this quarantine protocol does not apply to an individual who travels out of state pursuant to the individual’s regular and ordinary duties as an employee of a transportation business or entity)

Masks/Face Coverings:

An integral part of the guidelines and plans moving forward to reduce the spread of the disease is the implementation of wearing masks or face coverings.  In general, any employee who interacts with customers or who cannot maintain six feet of distance from other individuals is required to wear a face covering.  The general public is not required but is strongly encouraged to wear a face covering in any public setting.  The State of Utah plans to make and distribute two million face coverings under the “A Mask for Every Utahn” program.  Click here to order your mask. 

COVID-19 testing capacity in Utah has expanded at the same time that demand for testing has dropped.  The State Department of Health recommends that healthcare providers and testing sites test ALL individuals with fever or signs and symptoms of lower respiratory illness (e.g., cough or shortness of breath) for COVID-19, no matter how mild the symptoms may be.  You can find the nearest testing center here.  The Kane County Hospital is our local location for collecting samples that are then processed by ARUP.  You should call the hospital first to determine if you should be tested and how to proceed with testing. 435-644-5811. Click here for more information from Kane County Hospital

Schools will remain under a soft closure with remote or home schooling through the end of the school year.

Governor Herbert has prohibited landlords from evicting tenants for lack of paying rent, if the tenant has lost their job or suffered loss of income due to the pandemic.  This restriction does not forgive rent or any late fees but it prevents the eviction process from starting until May 15.  A full copy of the order can be found here.
