Some national parks set to partially reopen with social distancing measures

Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks are expected to begin the first phase of reopening today, May 18. The parks will begin increased recreational access and some limited visitor services. Yellowstone has announced a three-phased plan that initially opens only south and east entrances in Wyoming. Grand Teton’s approach will look similar to Yellowstone’s.

Who crowds together in parks anyway? As a rule I generally stay away from people in public anyway.

Don't even have to worry about it now, we're at a point where we don't know which rando in public is gonna get ridiculous about their distancing for fear of the sniffles so we're all being cautious. Because of the sheep.

Do the animals also have to maintain a distance of 6ft apart?
