/ yosemite park safe?
With traffic accidents on the way to the airport, hijackings on the plane, gun crime in the USA AND a virus you would be safer stopping in bed!
the park authorities still want you to come :-)
based on a german news article the problem is limited to the tents in curry village as the mice live inbetween the walls of the tents.
you can guard against infection by avoiding contact with rodents and their secretions (more here: sorry again german, but maybe google translate can help)
One can only quote the consensus feeling on the somewhat big ditch-centric SuperTopo
Or something like that

You forget to mention bears...
and ice falling off the headwalls, MASSIVE rockfall, tossed haulbags......
and lets not forget the (armed) park rangers
They are handing out small spray bottles containing a mild bleach solution at all the park entrances. The recommendation is to ightly spritz your bedclothes and particle mask before going to bed. You'll be fine, but...... yer still...... gonna die!!!
