After more than a month in a partial U.S. government shutdown, workers were starting to trickle back into national parks over the weekend, as officials expected the seasonal visits to resume and workers to get paid again.
The Tribune reported that on Sunday (Jan. 27), Yosemite National Park spokesman Scott Gediman was making calls and planning staff meetings for workers who were expected to return to the park Monday after 35 days away. Gediman, who worked through the shutdown without pay, said the park saw partial staffing during the weekend before the entire workforce arrived.
Entrance to Yosemite through Highway 41 remains limited. Visit Yosemite Madera County had reported that the south entrance into the park was also open to residents and those with confirmed reservations.
