Parks Canada looks forward to safely welcoming visitors to the Discovery Centre and Visitor Centre where they can learn about Gros Morne National Park. Visiting Parks Canada places is different in 2020 and ensuring safe and enjoyable visits to Gros Morne National Park requires shared effort.

Be prepared to follow public health guidelines:

  • Practice proper hand washing hygiene.
  • Maintain physical distance measures of two metres (six feet) between yourself and others.
  • Visitors are encouraged to wear a mask when they cannot maintain a physical distance of 2 metres (six feet).
  • Do not visit the park if you are sick. Do not visit the park if you were recently exposed to someone with COVID-19.

Bring your own COVID-19 hygiene kit: Hand soap/sanitizer, disinfectant spray/wipes, mask, and picnic blanket/table cloth.

Parks Canada is asking Canadians to be cautious when visiting Gros Morne National Park and to respect any closures that are in place. Anyone participating in recreational activities should take care to avoid injury and/or getting lost to help minimize the demands placed on search and rescue teams and on the health care system.
