Regarding COVID procedures:
The UA Mt Lemmon SkyCenter operates on the Coronado National Forest and within Federally owned buildings under a special permit from the USDA’s US Forest Service. In response to the increasing rates of COVID-19 transmission, and consistent with CDC Public Health Recommendations, the USDA has determined that all individuals, in areas of “substantial” or “high” community COVID-19 transmission are required to wear a mask indoors in Federal buildings, regardless of vaccination status.
Pima County, home to the UA Mt Lemmon SkyCenter, is currently an area of “substantial” COVID19 transmission, and as a result, all staff and guests must wear a mask at all times while indoors (including telescope domes) during our SkyNights program.
