Currie, NC- – Following guidance from the White House, as well as the Centers for Disease Control
(CDC), and state and local public health authorities, Moores Creek National Battlefield is restoring
access to the park’s visitor center. The National Park Service (NPS) is working servicewide with
federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and using
a phased approach to increase access on a park-by-park basis. Beginning Friday, September 18,
2020, Moores Creek National Battlefield will reopen access to:
• the restrooms at Patriot’s Hall. The restrooms are available seven days per week from 9 am
until 5 pm.
In addition, the following spaces continue to be available:
• park visitor center, trails, comfort station restrooms, and picnic shelters.
With public health in mind, the following facilities remain closed:
• Patriot’s Hall
The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners continues to be paramount. At
Moores Creek National Battlefield, our operational approach continues to be centered on examining each
facility function and service to ensure those operations comply with current public health guidance and are
regularly monitored. We continue to work closely with the NPS Office of Public Health using CDC guidance to
ensure public areas and workspaces are safe and clean.
A safe and enjoyable park experience begins at home. The NPS encourages visitors to plan their visit by
checking the park’s website and social media for current conditions and travel tips. The CDC has offered
guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We ask
the public to be our partner in recreating responsibly, by following CDC and state and local guidance, social
distancing, and wearing a face covering when social distance cannot be maintained.
