The Washington Monument will close beginning Saturday because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The monument will be temporarily suspending all elevator tours, the National Park Service announced in a press release.
However, “visitors are invited to continue to enjoy the Washington Monument grounds as well as other monuments along the National Mall,” the release said.
As with most coronavirus closings, the monument does not yet have a reopening date scheduled.
“The health and safety of people working at and entering the Washington Monument is our number one priority,” the release said.
