Zion NP finally closes after local health authority request

After weeks of reducing services and trying to manage visitation during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Zion National Park closed to the public Friday.

The closure announcement came Friday afternoon after the Utah Department of Health recommended the park's closure. Upon receiving that request, Zion Superintendent Jeff Bradybaugh, with the support of the NPS Deputy Director, Operations, David Vela and Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt, made the decision to immediately close the park until further notice.
