Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia reopened to the public Wednesday for family gravesite visits only.

The cemetery will be open between 8 a.m. and noon daily with family-pass holders able to visit gravesites between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. each day, WTOP reported.

All visitors must wear face coverings while on cemetery grounds and those who refuse will be asked to leave and escorted out. Visitors also are expected to practice social distancing.

While the cemetery has partially reopened, several areas remain closed to the public, including President John F. Kennedy’s gravesite, the Memorial Amphitheater, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Arlington House, WTOP reported.
