          Dear Ms. Kellon,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          The National Archives and Records Administration is committed to protecting the health and safety of visitors, customers, and employees during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. The Rotunda of the National Archives Building in Washington, DC, is open for viewing the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights with limited capacity from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays beginning on October 10, 2020. Reserve timed entry tickets. All other exhibits are closed at this time. Our research facilities also are closed to the public until further notice. In-person services for the public and other federal agencies have been suspended almost entirely. We are making every effort to continue providing essential services whenever possible, using online and remote capabilities. Our ability to serve customers in a timely manner may be hampered by the current crisis. We ask for your understanding and patience.

           

          We hope this is helpful.
