Visiting A National Park? Take A Mask With You.

Ok folks, it’s official. If you are planning to visit a national park and want to go INTO one of their buildings, then you need to wear a mask. No, I’m not talking about wandering around outside – although if you are at a crowded overlook, wearing a mask can’t hurt.

Click on the image above to go to the article published in the National Parks Traveler to see which parks are affected. Hint: lots of ’em.

So, don’t be a putz. Just wear the damned mask and protect yourself and others. It’s not a big deal.

Time To Mask Up Again In National Parks

In today’s edition of the National Parks Traveler is an article about mandatory masking within buildings in national parks that are ‘”(I)n areas of substantial or high community transmission” of the Covid virus.’ This is regardless of whether you are vaccinated or not.

A number of parks have already announced this on their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts (North Cascades, Glacier, Mount Rainier, Yosemite, Yellowstone, etc.). If you are planning a trip to a national park anytime soon, then you might want to check first to see if you need to bring a mask.

It’s not a political thing, folks. It’s a health matter. I and my family are fully vaccinated but you can bet I’ll be bringing my cool masks that my sister made along with me on forthcoming visits to a couple of national parks (provided nothing unforeseen occurs – like what happened with my recent eye surgery).

Stay safe, play it safe, keep others safe. It aint over yet, folks. The sooner you get vaccinated, the sooner those variants go away or are kept from forming (I’m lookin’ at you, Delta and Lambda variants).
