Default Update links for Utah and NM?

My daughter is heading through Sante Fe and Moab by herself this week. I checked and it seems NM state parks are closed. Does anyone have links to really current info on closures, or capacity problems? I read somewhere here that Moab was turning people away?

We've been touring Utah for about 3 weeks but can't directly address Moab. The three counties around Moab were some of the most restrictive initially and, even recently (after Dead Horse State Park opened its camping), the State Park was limited to residents of the county. The good news is, Canyonlands National Park is scheduled to open on May 29th, so that would imply that Moab will no longer be off limits.

Navajo Nation encompassing the 4 corners area has been shutting down all traffic on weekends


84 to Pagosa Springs, 160 to Cortez, Co, then 491 & 191 should have her clear of those restrictions


( so no shiprock, monument valley, mexican hat, some smaller areas in CO have restrictions as well- so stay /plan on the main roads)

Canyonlands and Arches National Parks will reopen for limited day use access on May 29th but NPS facilities including campgrounds will remain closed.

Our Canyonlands camping reservations for June were cancelled by NPS and Recreation.gov then issued refunds.

I drove through Moab in early May and all the tourist attractions and businesses (except gas stations and the usual vital businesses) were closed including the visitors information center. I would google it now to see what is opened. Kayakers were on the Colorado River .
