BROWNING — The Blackfeet Tribal Council has decided to close the eastern border of Glacier National Park into the Blackfeet Reservation for the remainder of the 2020 season as a result of the jump in coronavirus cases.

According to Blackfeet COVID-19 Incident Command, the closure of the border is for the protection of the residents of the Blackfeet Nation.

The following roads are closed for this year's tourism season: Two Medicine, Chief Mountain, St. Mary’s, Cut Bank Creek, and Many Glacier.

The west entrance of the park remains open and visitors can travel to Avalanche Creek. However, there are still time and facility restrictions in place.
