U.S. Capitol Tours to be Suspended

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Out of an abundance of caution, due to COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Capitol Visitor Center has temporarily suspended all U.S. Capitol tours beginning at 5:00 p.m. on March 12, 2020. The suspension is currently anticipated to remain in effect until 8:00 a.m. on April 1, 2020. The White House and Bureau of Engraving and Printing have also temporarily suspended all tours. U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) has released guidelines for constituents who have already booked tours through his office or are considering a trip to Washington, D.C.
“Protecting the health and safety of our constituents remains my top priority,” said Rep. Hudson. “Suspending tours and following guidelines from experts at the CDC can help limit the spread and impact of the coronavirus in our nation’s capital and around the country. My office remains able to help answer any questions and I encourage constituents to visit for the latest updates on tours and resources to address the coronavirus.”
Each month, Rep. Hudson’s office schedules numerous tours for constituents visiting Washington, D.C. at the U.S. Capitol, White House, Bureau of Engraving and Printing and other sites. So far in 2020, Rep. Hudson’s office has booked more than 140 tours that have already been completed or are scheduled for later in the year. Rep. Hudson is assuring people with tours impacted by the suspension that they will be able to reschedule at a later date.
