Moores Creek National Battlefield is announcing modifications to operations to implement the latest guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), and local and state authorities to promote social distancing. As of March 24, 2020, the Moores Creek National Battlefield Visitor Center, Patriots Hall, Patriots Hall restrooms, and other park facilities are closed until further notice. Trails, comfort station restrooms, and recreational spaces will remain open.
If you would like park staff to send you a copy of the park brochure and/or the Passport stamp, simply message Ranger Jason Collins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners at Moores Creek National Battlefield is our number one priority. The National Park Service (NPS) is working with the federal, state, and local authorities to closely monitor the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. We will notify the public when we resume full operations and provide updates on our website (www.nps.gov/mocr) and social media channels (facebook.com/moorescreeknps).
The NPS urges visitors to do their part when visiting a park and to follow CDC guidance to prevent the spread of infectious diseases by maintaining a safe distance between yourself and other groups; washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze; and most importantly, staying home if you feel sick.
For high-risk populations, such as the elderly and people with underlying conditions, we ask that they take extra caution and follow CDC guidance for those at higher risk of serious illness. Updates about NPS operations will be posted on www.nps.gov/coronavirus. Please check with individual parks for specific details about park operations.
Updates will be posted here as well as the park's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/MooresCreekNPS).
The park is currently working on posting lesson plans and other curriculum activities to allow the park to be enjoyed from home.
