In spite of President Donald Trump agreeing to a temporary reopening of the government on Friday, the Highway 41 entrance into Yosemite will remain partially closed to visitors, according to the region’s tourism board.

Trump agreed to reopen the government for three weeks while discussions on border security continue.

But Visit Yosemite Madera County says that between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., the southern entrance into the park will be open only to residents, those with confirmed lodging reservations inside Yosemite National Park, or those intending to visit the Yosemite Ski and Snowboard Area.
