In compliance with the District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser’s March 24, 2020 order closing all non-essential businesses due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have suspended tour operations. The governors of Maryland and Virginia have issued similar orders. While no actual tours are going out, we are still available to respond to requests for information regarding future tours through email, text, or phone. The mayor’s order currently runs until April 25 with the likelihood that it will be extended well into May. We look forward to the day when the order is lifted and we can return to offering private tours once again. We are continually monitoring the situation, paying close attention to our local, state, and national governments, including advisories from our public health authorities. We are committed to staying in business and will resume operations as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime we wish health and safety to you and to all of our customers. Be well!
