COVID-19 Mask Requirement
Due to new CDC data and guidance and direction from the Department of the Interior, all persons, regardless of vaccination status, must wear masks in federal buildings if community transmission rates are substantial or high. The transmission rates for Sangamon County, Illinois, where Lincoln Home National Historic Site is located, is high.
Thus, if entering or inside the Visitor Center, Lincoln Home, Dean House, Arnold House, or any other buildings at Lincoln Home National Historic Site, please be sure to wear a mask.
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. Thank you for your cooperation.
