COVID-19 delays tours at Grand Coulee Dam

Operations not affected

The Grand Coulee Dam will continue to operate as usual, but its visitor center will be closed to the public, and tours of the dam, which had been scheduled to start April 1, will be delayed until further notice.

“Today, the Bureau of Reclamation temporarily closed public visitation to the Grand Coulee Dam Visitor Center in support of the recommended guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention”, a March 19 press release from the bureau reads. "The health and safety of the public and our employees is our number one priority.”

“Water deliveries and powerplant operations will continue without interruption. Mission essential functions, such as security and law enforcement, will continue.”
