The Washington Monument is once again open to visitors after being closed for six months due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It was one of the last sites controlled by the National Park Service in the D.C. area to reopen during the pandemic. Many parks that are controlled by the NPS remained accessible to visitors throughout the pandemic, the newspaper reported.
Park service officials said tickets will be available the day before a planned visit, WRC reported.
Other changes include reduced elevator capacity and mask requirements. The monument will also be closed midday for cleaning, WRC reported.
