Please check the Yosemite park official website:  https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/covid19.htm

Information relative to covid 19 is front and center.  Backpacking with the proper permit is allowed - no change there.

Check other park web sites for similar information.  There should be official websites for the pertinent national forests as well.  If all else fails, give the relevant office a ring and chat away!
