JACKSON HOLE, Wyo.

Park officials announced Monday that the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center in Moose, the Colter Bay Visitor Center on Jackson Lake, and the ranger station and welcome center at Jenny Lake were opening Tuesday. Jackson Hole News & Guide reported that these visitor centers now have plastic glass barriers at help desks, exhibits that are stanchioned off, and park employees wearing face coverings when social distancing is not an option.
