BBAHC continues to prepare for a potential outbreak of coronavirus in the region. The state introduced new guidelines for sport fishing this week that will shape Bristol Bay's summer tourism, and the Brooks Camp Development in Katmai National Park will close until at least July 1.

Katmai National Park will implement a permitting process for visitors who want to access the Brooks River Corridor. The park is also looking into electric bikes and extending parking hours in Lake Camp.
