The National Park Service said starting Friday, May 21, visitors will need to reserve a day-use pass to enter the park.
That includes annual and lifetime pass holders.
A news release said the temporary reservation system is being reinstated to "allow the park to manage visitation levels to reduce risks associated with exposure to COVID-19."
Each reservation is valid for three days and will get one vehicle and its occupants into the park. Reservation passes will become available starting Wednesday, April 21 at 8:00 am.
Anyone staying at the Yosemite Valley Lodge, Ahwahnee Hotel or Upper Pines Campground will receive a day-use pass with their hotel reservation.
The reservation system is set to stay in effect through Thursday, September 30.
