Post by maverick » Mon Dec 07, 2020 11:56 am

Yosemite NP:
In support of the California Regional Stay-at- Home order in the San Joaquin Valley region, beginning at noon on Monday, December 7, 2020,

Yosemite National Park is open 8 am to 5 pm for day-use activities only. Lodging and campgrounds are currently closed. Some services and facilities are limited, and shuttles are not operating. Consistent with the state’s regional stay at home order, day use limits will be in place until local conditions change. Please refer to California’s regional Stay-at-Home order (https://covid19.ca.gov/stay-home-except-for-essential.../...) for the current timeline of these restrictions.

Yosemite National Park will be closed daily to all visitors from 5 pm to 8 am and park gates will be locked overnight.

All in-park overnight lodging will be closed for incoming arrivals beginning on Monday, December 7, 2020 and will remain closed until further notice.
All overnight camping within Yosemite National Park will be prohibited beginning on Monday, December 7, 2020 until further notice. This includes all park campgrounds, wilderness camping, and overnight use along climbing routes. Overnight backpacking trips into Yosemite’s wilderness will also be prohibited.


All visitors planning trips to Yosemite are asked to be our partner in recreating responsibly. Yosemite National Park conducts hundreds of search and rescue missions each year, many of which could be avoided with visitors planning and making responsible decisions. During the ongoing health crisis, it’s critical that we make wise choices to keep our park rangers and volunteers who serve as emergency responders out of harm’s way.

Please follow these #RecreateResponsibly tips:
-Adopt social distancing practices and stay at least 6 feet from people
outside your household unit
-Wear a face covering when social distancing cannot be maintained.
-Stay on the trail, for your safety and the safety of others
-Stay within your limits. Yosemite is a great place to find outdoor adventure, but please don’t push your self beyond your physical limits.

The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners at Yosemite National Park is our number one priority. The NPS urges visitors to do their part when visiting a park and to follow CDC guidance to prevent the spread of infectious diseases by maintaining a safe distance between yourself and other groups; washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze; and most importantly, staying home if you feel sick.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
