WEST GLACIER, MT – Glacier National Park announced via Twitter earlier this week that masks will be required in all federal buildings within the park. The mandate will apply to all visitors, regardless of vaccination status. The park cites rising COVID-19 cases within the surrounding community for the reinstatement of the mandate.
The national park spans parts of Flathead and Glacier counties. While Flathead County reports low community COVID-19 levels, Glacier County reports high community levels, at 109 cases per 100,000 and 269 cases per 100,000, respectively.
The park thanks visitors for their patience and commitment during this time.
