COVID-19 Travel & Wildfire Information
High Fire Danger
Wyoming is expected to have an unseasonably hot, dry summer and fall. Wyoming’s public lands have rated fire danger as moderately high and may have fire restrictions put in place to ensure public safety and protect natural resources. Be sure to research any fire restrictions in your area and follow any requirements put into place.
Even if fires aren’t present in Wyoming, you might experience smoke from fires burning in other western states. Please be prepared for reduced visibility and poor air quality. Smoke from other fires in the West can often be present in parts of western Wyoming, including Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks.
Please continue to follow guidelines for protective measures put out by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). These include washing hands frequently with soap and water, minimizing hand-to-face contact and maintaining a social distance of up to 6-feet from other people.
