The health and safety of our employees and visitors is our highest priority. To accomplish that, the Service is adhering to the most current guidance from the CDC, OPM, OEM and other health authorities. We are also following the guidance provided by state and local authorities. Whenever possible, outdoor recreation sites at national wildlife refuges and hatcheries will remain open to the public. However, refuge visitor centers and other public facilities, such as restrooms, may be closed and most scheduled events have been postponed. Visitors should call ahead for local conditions. The Service will post information about any changes to the operational status of refuges, hatcheries or facilities on our FWS Coronavirus (COVID-19) Public Health Update webpage, as well as on the individual refuge and facility webpages.
