HODGENVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Abraham Lincoln Birthplace in Kentucky is increasing visitor access and services this week with guidance from government health officials about the coronavirus pandemic.
The park at Hodgenville reopened access Monday to its visitors center, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Access will remain closed to the visitors center bookstore, the Memorial Building and in-person, ranger-led interpretive programs.
The National Park Service is phasing in increased access on a park-by-park basis, it said in a news release. The public should follow local health orders and avoid crowds and high-risk outdoor activities, the release said.
