Yellowstone to open Wyoming entrances Monday; Montana entrances remain closed

Visitors will be able to enter Yellowstone National Park from Wyoming beginning Monday, but the entrances on the Montana side of the border will remain closed until at least June 1.

Yellowstone Superintendent Cam Sholly announced the park’s phased reopening plan Wednesday on a conference call with Grand Teton National Park Superintendent Gopaul Noojibail and leaders from gateway towns. The plan begins a lifting of the seven-week closure of Yellowstone because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The phased reopening plan allows Yellowstone’s east entrance in Cody and the south entrance at the border of Grand Teton and Yellowstone to reopen Monday at noon. Grand Teton will also open that day.
