After President Joe Biden’s executive order requiring mask wearing in federal buildings, the National Park Service is immediately implementing a mask requirement for employees, visitors, partners and contractors.
At Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Fort Raleigh National Historic Site and Wright Brothers National Memorial, face masks are now required in all park buildings and facilities, including visitor centers and museums. Masks are also required on NPS-managed lands when physical distancing cannot be maintained, including beaches and trails.
As conditions are subject to change, visitors should check park websites and social media channels for details on operations before they visit. Other tips to recreate responsibly are available on NPS.gov. Park rangers are on duty to provide information, protect visitors and park resources, and uphold this requirement.
For a full listing of operations at each park, visit the following operational status pages:
