The National Park Service Announced late Wednesday that Devils Tower will be closed until further notice.
“Effective immediately, Devils Tower National Monument is closed to all park visitors until further notice,” the Park Service said in a release. “There will be no visitor access permitted. We will notify the public when we resume full operations and provide updates on our website and social media channels.”
The Park Service said the closure is due to a request of local public health officers from Crook County, WY.
“The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners is our number one priority,” the release reads. “The National Park Service (NPS) is working with federal, state, and local authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The Park Service said they would notify the public when they resume full operations and will provide updates on their website and social media channels.
