Arlington National Cemetery Lifts Restrictions at Gravesites

Officials with Arlington National Cemetery announced Monday the number of people at its gravesites will no longer be limited.

Sites such as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and President John F. Kennedy’s gravesite will be fully open, cemetery leaders said on Twitter, WTTG-TV (Channel 5) reported.

The limitations were imposed last year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The lift comes as Washington, D.C.-area jurisdictions have eased many coronavirus restrictions due to the high number of vaccinations and low number of new cases.

However, WTTG reported cemetery leaders still request people not fully vaccinated to continue to wear masks and practice social distancing. Additionally, in accordance with the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance, masks aren’t required outside but they are mandated for indoors.

The reopening of the Arlington Metro Station, along with another on the Blue Line Sunday, had to do with Metro platform improvements, not the pandemic but comes a few days before the Memorial Day weekend, when thousands of family members and visitors usually come to honor those service members who died for the good of the country, WTTG reported.
