Report Illnesses on the Trail

It is important and helpful for hikers to report cases of norovirus to Appalachian Trail Conservancy and the National Park Service.  This allows these agencies the ability to notify other hikers in a timely manner and prevent the spread of the virus. 

The emergency contact number for the National Park Service is 1-800-732-0911.

The ATC is able to receive incident reports via e-mail, fax, or mail.
