Looks like they've paused, or at least haven't updated in 3+ days. Good luck to everyone. Hopefully the uncertainty will lower demand and backpackers like it did two years ago with the fire, that was nice from an overcrowding perspective.

I noticed this as well. :(

I also read on FB that Pursuit (Glacier Park Inc) has been cancelling mid-June reservations in St Mary Village.

The processing of permit applications is officially on hold:

https://www.nps.gov/glac/planyourvisit/conditions.htm

“Backcountry Advance Permit Reservations

The processing of backcountry permit advance reservations has been delayed due to operational adjustments related to COVID-19. The park does not have an estimated time for processing and completing permit requests at this stage. The backcountry staff appreciate your flexibility and understanding as we navigate these unprecedented times. We apologize for any inconvenience or delay in planning. Please check the park website for any significant changes impacting backcountry or boating this summer. Advance reservations, for summer of 2020, can still be made online at Backcountry Permitting Advanced Reservations.“
