Grand Canyon river runners asked to bypass iconic side canyon at tribe's request

Just as the Blackfeet Nation is taking steps to guard its members against Covid-19 by closing access to the eastern half of Glacier National Park, the Havasupai Tribe is banning outside entry to its reservation, and Grand Canyon boaters have been asked to respect that.
