This News Extra is very extra, with feature stories on the latest local health guidelines and a proposed timed entry system at Arches National Park.
First (00:00 min), the Utah Governor’s Office rejected a proposed local health order that would have continued some capacity limitations for overnight lodging and camping in Grand County. With the Governor’s rejection, Grand County officially moves to the “yellow” or low risk phase.
And later (5:00 min), Moab’s local governing bodies endorsed a temporary timed entry system for Arches National Park this morning. This support comes on the first day of the park’s reopening, where staff shut the gates just three hours after reopening to reduce congestion.
Finally (8:00 min), an interview with the Chief of Interpretation at Arches and Canyonlands on visitor expectations.
