Yosemite National Park will reopen this week with new restrictions.

The park was closed for more than 2-1/2 months because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Officials said the number of visitors admitted starting Thursday will be restricted to about half those that normally visit this time of year.

Some park facilities including campgrounds and visitor centers will remain closed or have limited access to help prevent the spread of the virus.
