The country is starting to open up – just in time for midterms.
House Sergeant-at-Arms William Walker has announced that the US Capitol will begin a phased re-opening.
This comes after a re-opening plan was officially approved by members of the Capitol Police Board.
A phased reopening of the Capitol, which has been closed to the public for the past two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will officially start next Monday.
House Sergeant-at-Arms William Walker and Capitol physician Brian Monahan announced in a memo to lawmakers and staff on Wednesday that the public reopening will take place gradually over the next few months.
Members of the Capitol Police Board, which includes the House and Senate sergeants-at-arms and the Architect of the Capitol, crafted the reopening plan earlier this month and have now formally approved it.
“We appreciate your continued patience and cooperation as we work together to resume public tours of the Capitol for the American people in a way that protects the health and safety of visitors and institutional staff alike,” Walker and Monahan wrote in the memo.
