YOSEMITE, Calif. (KERO-TV) — The raw sewage at Yosemite National Park has confirmed the presence of the coronavirus in the water.

So far no employees or visitors have reported testing positive since the state reopened last month.

However, the Public Health Department officer in Maricopa County said that the results likely won’t lead to any changes due to the parks already following local and state restrictions.

Officials are again reminding the public to stay vigilant.
