YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK – The northern half of Yellowstone National Park remains closed due to the coronavirus, but Memorial Day weekend traffic in the park’s southern half was similar to last year despite a Saturday snowstorm that closed the east and southern entrances.

Park officials say Memorial Day weekend traffic for those gates after Saturday was similar to last year with almost 4,700 vehicles entering Sunday and Monday, down only about 100 from a year ago.

Yellowstone has been open since May 18 through its two Wyoming entrances west of Cody and north of Grand Teton National Park.

Yellowstone’s three gates in Montana remain closed to park tourists and will open no sooner than Monday.
