Indiana Dunes National Park implementing federal mask requirement
The Indiana Dunes National Park announced on Tuesday the implementation and support of President Biden’s executive order on mask mandates.
The park stated all employees, visitors, partners, and contractors must wear a mask within park grounds, buildings, and facilities.
Park Superintendent Paul Labovitz commented, “We know you care about the park, wearing a mask is an easy way to say that you care about each other. It’s such an easy way to stop the spread of COVID-19 until we all receive the vaccine. Thank your fellow park visitors for masking up when you see them.”
The new requirement includes the Dorothy Buell Memorial Visitor Center, the Paul J. Douglas Center for Environmental Education, and the pavilion at the Portage Lakefront and Riverwalk.
