House Dems push DOI to require masks indoors in NPs

House Democrats are pushing the National Park Service (NPS) to require masks as visits to America’s parks surge amid the pandemic.

“We now understand that the Department of the Interior (DOI) is not requiring masks or social distancing at indoor facilities operated by the National Park Service (NPS), even at units located where the surrounding state or local government has instituted a mandatory mask requirement,” lawmakers on the House Natural Resources Committee including Chair Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.) wrote in a letter to Interior Department Secretary David Bernhardt.
