The visitor center at the South Rim is closed until further notice, as are the Tusayan and Yavapai Geology museums, Kolb Studio, Desert View Watchtower and Verkamps Visitor Center.
The Grand Canyon Conservancy’s park store is also closed.
Ranger programs and Watchtower cultural demonstrations are cancelled, and backcountry permits are available by phone and email only.
