Zion National Park Reopens With Limited Operations


Zion National Park has reopened with restrictions after an extended closure caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The Spectrum reported that the park will be open during daylight hours but the visitor shuttle system will remain closed. The park was closed for more than a month after Utah restricted gatherings to 10 or fewer people to comply with social distancing guidelines. It opened Tuesday. Park officials say there are still closed areas and activities, including The Narrows and the top section of Angels Landing. Officials say hiking is allowed but people must remain on established trails and cross-country travel is prohibited.
