Joshua Tree Limits Indoor Services

Joshua Tree National Park reports
Joshua Tree National Park, in response to guidance from the State Health Department and to support the nation’s effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, will temporarily limit some indoor services at the park. Effective immediately, the following areas will be temporarily limited until local public health guidance changes:
1. Oasis of Mara Visitor Center, Twentynine Palms, CA – The museum portion of the visitor center will be temporarily closed but the bookstore and information desk will remain open.
2. Joshua Tree Visitor Center – The museum portion of the visitor center will be temporarily closed but the bookstore and information desk will remain open.
3. Cottonwood Visitor Center – The museum portion of the visitor center will be temporarily closed but the bookstore and information desk will remain open.
4. Black Rock Nature Center – The exhibit portion of the nature center will be temporarily closed but the bookstore and information desk will remain open.
The health and well being of visitors and park employees remains our top priority. We continue to work closely with the NPS Office of Public Health using CDC guidance to ensure public areas and work-spaces are safe and clean for visitors, employees, partners, and volunteers. Our operations will be flexible, continually evaluated and adjusted as necessary to ensure public health and safety. Updates on the park’s operations will be posted on the park’s website and on social media.
