|George Rogers Clark National Historic Park makes modifications due to virus|
Vincennes, IN - George Rogers Clark National Historical Park in response to Executive Order 20-08 issued by Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb, is announcing additional modifications to operations to support federal, state, and local efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
As of March 24, 2020, George Rogers Clark National Historical Park will offer very limited services outside those that support visitor or resource protection. At the park, the following services and operations will be suspended in order to comply with the Indiana order:
The National Park Visitor Center, which was previously open in a limited capacity, will completely close until further notice
The George Rogers Clark Memorial Building will also continue to be closed until further notice.
The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners at George Rogers Clark National Historical Park is our number one priority. The National Park Service (NPS) is working with federal, state, and local authorities to closely monitor COVID-19. We will notify the public when we resume full operations and provide updates on our website www.nps.gov/gero and social media channels.
Outdoor spaces at the park remain accessible to the public in accordance with the latest federal, state, and local health guidance.
The NPS encourages people who choose to visit the park during this pandemic to adhere to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state and local public health authorities to protect visitors and employees. As services are limited, the NPS urges visitors to continue to practice Leave No Trace principles, including pack-in and pack-out, to keep outdoor spaces safe and healthy.
Updates about NPS operations will be posted on www.nps.gov/coronavirus. Please check with individual parks for specific details about park operations.
