Buck Wild Hummer Tours Covid-19 Response Message

Buck Wild Hummer Tours Covid-19 Response Message

Update 8/5/2022

Per the National Park Service Commercial Use Authorization Office, masks are no longer required in commercial vehicles inside the Grand Canyon National Park. Visitors and employees are always welcome to wear a mask if it makes them more comfortable.

Please note that this standard is flexible depending on conditions in Coconino County. It is possible that we may return to a mask requirement under this guidance if conditions in Coconino County returns to a HIGH community level. We all need to be prepared to be flexible under this new system.

NPS EMAIL 8/5/2022:

On Thursday, August 4, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated the Coconino County Community Level to MEDIUM.

Masks are no longer required in either indoor or outdoor locations, both for the public and federal employees while the local community level remains in either low or medium.  Please note that this standard is flexible depending on conditions in Coconino County. It is possible that we may return to a mask requirement under this guidance if conditions in Coconino County returns to a HIGH community level. We all need to be prepared to be flexible under this new system.

Visitors and employees are always welcome to wear a mask if it makes them more comfortable.

Updates on local community levels for Coconino County will be posted and updated on the main nps.gov/grca webpage under the ‘Alerts’ section.  This information will be updated weekly on Thursdays by the CDC, and we should remain flexible and be ready to shift back into a mask mandate posture with little notice.

This guidance includes public transportation, such as vehicles operated by CUA holders transporting clients while in the park.

 

 

Update 7/1/2022

Masks are once again required for all passengers aged 2 and over while in the Hummers inside the Grand Canyon National Park. Masks may be removed when you are outside the Hummer at the viewpoints. This is a National Park Service Requirement and applies to all commercial vehicles (all tour companies) operating inside the park.

Please see below for the most recent update from 7/1/2022 from the NPS regarding the mask mandate:

As noted in previous correspondence, mask requirements for Grand Canyon National Park are determined by ​CDC COVID-19 ​Community Level, which tracks the impact of COVID-19 illness on health and healthcare systems.  The CDC COVID-19 Community Level is only updated once a week on Thursdays.

As of Thursday afternoon, June 30, our area has transitioned into CDC’s High COVID Community Level. The majority of the state has also transitioned with 11 of 15 Arizona counties in high.

As we have been communicating during past few weeks, this indicates an immediate change. Masks are now required for all individuals over the age of two years, regardless of vaccinations status, in buildings, public transportation, and government vehicles.   This also includes CUA commercial tour vehicles – masks must be worn by everyone in the vehicle during your tours while inside the park .

Thanks in advance for your efforts to implement this change. Please let us know if we can be of additional assistance with this implementation or if there are additional questions we can answer. We’ll make sure to touch base again next Thursday when the next CDC COVID Community Level information is published.

 

 

Update 4/27/2022

Masks are optional for passengers and guides while inside the Hummer. This new policy is effective 4/27/2022, and is subject to change depending on the information we receive from the National Park Service.

We encourage guests to wear masks when social distancing is not possible.

Please see below for the most recent update from the NPS regarding the mask mandate:

Masking on Public Transit Systems 

On Monday, April 18, a federal judge ruled that the mask mandate on public transportation and airplanes was unlawful. New information on this ruling is now posted on CDC’s website. However, the ruling gives airport, mass transit systems, and transportation companies the option to keep mask rules or remove them.

We are working with the NPS Washington Office (WASO) and DOI to determine how this may impact us here in the park and have yet to receive definitive guidance. We will provide additional information as soon as we are able.

Update 4/21/2022

Masks are still required for all passengers aged 2 and over while in the Hummers inside the Grand Canyon National Park. Masks may be removed when you are outside the Hummer at the viewpoints. This is a National Park Service Requirement and applies to all commercial vehicles (all tour companies) operating inside the park.
