The park service also announced that it also
“may institute temporary closures of public access to roadways, parking areas and restrooms within the National Mall and Memorial Parks if conditions warrant, to protect public safety and park resources.”
The National Park Service closure press release came after the Washington, DC Mayor, Muriel Bowser on Monday urged Americans to participate in Joe Biden inauguration virtually.
The mayor also asked President Trump to declare a pre-emergency declaration for DC due to “unprecedented challenges” and the “domestic terror attack on the United States Capitol” and as coronavirus cases surge in the District.
Mayor also asked the Interior Department to cancel public gathering permits from Jan. 10 to 24.
According to Bowser, the District’s goal now is “to protect the District of Columbia from a repeat of the violent insurrection experienced at the Capitol and its grounds.”
