YOSEMITE, Calif. - One of America's favorite national parks was shut down to all visitors Friday. 

The local health department requested that Yosemite National Park be closed. 

While other national parks have closed some areas, this is the first national park to close entirely.

Guests were told that this move would last until at least March 31. 

Tuesday, the hotels and restaurants had already closed as a precaution.
