Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, many attractions in Washington, D.C. are closed to the public. All White House and U.S. Capitol tours have been suspended effective Thursday, March 12th. The Capitol will remain closed to the public until further notice, and the White House has not yet issued guidance on when public tours will resume.
The Library of Congress and U.S. Supreme Court are both closed to the public until further notice. For an update on other tours in the Washington, D.C., area that might be affected by these closures, please check the following sites.

If you are interested in booking tours once the buildings reopen to the public, my office is happy to work with you to submit your requests. All tickets are provided to constituents on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to the large number of visitors, please request them as early as possible in order to maximize your chances.
Obtaining a White House tour can be very difficult. It is very important to follow the below guidelines for your application to be considered.
