YOSEMITE AIR QUALITY INDEX ANNOUNCEMENT

The safety of our visitors and staff at The Ansel Adams Gallery is of utmost importance.  During fire season, smoke can degrade the air quality in Yosemite. It can reduce visibility and poses health concerns for everybody, especially sensitive people. During this time our staff uses the AQI (air quality index) to determine if the air quality is at a safe level for our visitors and staff.

Here is how the AQI level in Yosemite Valley effects The Ansel Adams Gallery:

150 AQI, we will close our outdoor operations. The staff will notify any photography education class students at least one hour prior to the start of class.

300 AQI, we will close outdoor and indoor operations.  

 

For more information please see the information below:

COVID WORKSHOP PRECAUTIONS:
The Ansel Adams Gallery has modified our workshops to be functional in a covid environment and has reduced class sizes to protect participants and staff. With the recent surge from Omicron, we are making it our main priority for a safe environment for all of our workshop participants. Masks are required in all buildings in the park and our workshop room is fully equipped with an air filtration system.

The Gallery will provide the following:
COVID-19 rapid test upon arrival
Masks
Hand sanitizer
Sanitation wipes

The Ansel Adams Gallery requires all workshop participants to show proof of  the COVID-19 vaccination and have a molecular COVID test prior to their arrival in Yosemite National Park. 

Limited Services:
Since Covid, Yosemite has been experiencing limited food services in the Valley. We suggest bringing breakfast and snack food. The Valley does have a small grocery store, but the selection is limited especially for specialty food items.
