The late Congressman John R. Lewis will lie in state in the U.S. Capitol. The following is information regarding viewing hours, public health measures, road closures and other details regarding the event.
The Architect of the Capitol is delivering virtual Capitol experiences to those unable to visit because of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Resources for students and families learning from home are grouped into elementary, middle school and high school levels. There are also virtual field trips and online exhibits.
Out of an abundance of caution, the Capitol Visitor Center and the Conservatory of the United States Botanic Garden will temporarily close to the public until further notice to reduce the risk of transmitting the coronavirus (COVID-19). The outdoor gardens and grounds remain open.
