These regulations are in effect until May 31, so, they will change
before the contest.

Pertinent to your visit:

Non-essential travel is still banned.
Seems to be a couple'o statements at odds:

"Crucially, much of the previous order will remain intact, particularly
the directive to stay at home except for outings essential to work,
health, safety and welfare."


"Additional state parks and certain outdoor recreation guides can
operate with CSPs (COVID-Safe Practices)."

Everyone must wear a mask in public.
Rovers avoid the public. HI!HI! But, I have my mask, and Purell!

Check with Capulin about potential restrictions there, but I think at
present all National Parks and Monuments are closed.
Maybe not; from the Capulin Volcano website:
"Following guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention, and state and local public health authorities, we are
increasing access and services in a phased approach across all units of
the National Park System. Before visiting a park, please check the park
website to determine its operating status."

So, yes, I'll check with them before heading out.
One "benefit" of COVID-19 is that National Park entries are free
for now -- but, there are very little or no services for the public.

Thanks for the URL, Duffey! I'll keep checking it up to ARRL JUN VHF.
