July 28 2021 update: Masks are still required at Pearl Harbor National Memorial for all people over the age of two, regardless of vaccination status. The February 5 Administrative Order is still in effect.
As of February 5 2021, masks are required for all visitors over the age of two, except when actively eating or drinking, in the following locations:
1. All common areas and shared workspaces in buildings owned, rented or leased by the National Park Service, including, but not limited to, park visitor centers, administrative offices, lodges, gift shops and restaurants.
2. The following outdoor areas, when others are present, where the superintendent has determined that physical distancing (staying at least six feet apart) cannot reasonably be maintained:
- All areas of the Visitor Center campus between the parking lots and the shoreline. Masks must cover the nose and mouth and fit snugly around the nose and chin with no large gaps around the sides of the face. Masks not designed to be protective, masks with ventilation valves, and face shields do not meet the requirement. Authority: 36 CFR 1.5(a)(2)
The US Navy requires the use of face coverings for all visitors while transiting to and from the USS Arizona Memorial. Tours will be limited to 50 people per vessel to facilitate social distancing. The first come first served ticket distribution system has been discontinued at this time. The National Park Service asks visitors to reserve tickets ahead of time on www.recreation.gov prior to arrival and present a paper copy or digital reservation confirmation to NPS staff for validation no sooner than 30 minutes prior to their program time. Tickets for specific tour dates will be made available at 3:00 HST the day before the selected program date. For example, tickets for October 10 will become available on October 9. The 45-minute program will consist of a brief orientation from NPS staff, followed by a boat ride to and from the memorial on U.S. Navy vessels.
