Shenandoah National Park and Skyline Drive are closed.
The National Park Service (NPS) received a letter from the Rappahannock Rapidan Health District of the Virginia Department of Health recommending the full closure of Shenandoah National Park. Upon receiving this request from the health department, Superintendent Jennifer Flynn, 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.
PATC headquarters is closed. PATC employees are teleworking when they can. The club will generally not hold sponsored group activities. Cabins are now closed. The trails are open (but some have become quite busy). The club announced the measures in the Guidance issued March 16 (as updated).
