COVID-19 Safety Requirements

  • Masks are no longer required for staff and visitors. For those choosing to wear them, however, we encourage you to wear masks that cover the nose and mouth and fit snugly around the nose and chin with no large gaps around the sides of the face.
  • We encourage all persons to maintain six feet distance from your tour guide and other visitors
  • The indoor portion of the tour will be limited to approximately fifteen minutes as a public health measure to reduce COVID-19 risks for all individuals.


School Groups

For the 2021-2022 school year, the Maggie L. Walker NHS will not have in-person field trips available to school groups, but will have long-distance learning opportunities and virtual field trip options for classes. Reservations for school groups should be made as far in advance as possible, especially for the most popular school tour seasons, mid-January through mid-May and September through October. The tours include special curriculum-based education programming. To reserve a school group tour, please e-mail Ranger Andrea DeKoter: Andrea_DeKoter@nps.gov
