Shenandoah National Park closes due to COVID-19 concerns

10 April 2020 Covid19 Luray/Page County Front Royal/Warren County News


Shenandoah National Park is closed until further notice. Superintendent Jennifer Flynn and other officials made the decision after the National Park Service (NPS) received a letter from the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District of the Virginia Department of Health recommending the full closure of Shenandoah National Park.

The decision was supported by National Park Service Officials Deputy Director of Operations David Vela and Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt. Virginia State Highways 211 and 33, which pass through the park, will remain accessible.

The park will notify the public when it resumes full operations. Park updates will be posted here.
