Alerts & Conditions

The National Park Service (NPS) is working service-wide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local public health authorities, access to Independence National Historical Park is as follows:

Open

  • Outdoor spaces, including:
    • Independence Mall
    • South Side of Independence Square
    • Washington Square at Walnut Street between 6th and 7th Streets
    • Rose Garden between Walnut and Locust Streets and 4th and 5th Streets

  • All park buildings, including Independence Hall, the Independence Visitor Center, and the Liberty Bell Center.

While the listed areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased, and services may be limited. When recreating, please follow local area health orders and recreate responsibly by keeping social distance, wearing a face covering when social distance cannot be maintained, avoiding high risk activities, and staying home if you feel sick.

The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.
