After a six-month hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, the White House is set to allow the general public to participate in one of its famous tours beginning in September.

According to an announcement from the White House, “The Office of the First Lady is pleased to announce that the White House Visitors Office will resume public tours on Saturday, September 12, 2020.”


However, there will be some restrictions as the country continues to battle the virus, including reduced capacity, social distancing markers, and a mandatory mask requirement.
