Gateway Arch reinstates the mask mandate on Tuesday

ST. LOUIS – Effective Tuesday, December 27th, masks will again be required for all visitors and staff at the Gateway Arch.

The mandate comes at the behest of the National Parks Service, which bases its masking guidelines on those of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention COVID-19 Community Levels Tool. Both St. Louis City and County are rated “high” due to a surge in COVID-19 in the population, according to the CDC.

According to these guidelines, anyone entering the park must “wear a surgical mask, procedure mask, internationally approved device (e.g. KN95s and KF94s) or respirator”.

Cloth masks and other face coverings such as spats are not permitted. Free masks will be made available to visitors at the Arch Information Desk.

Arch visitors can only enter the memorial through the new west entrance on Fourth Street and the Old Courthouse. The bow legs are now just exits.

The park reopened Monday after closing for Christmas Day. Gateway Arch reinstates the mask mandate on Tuesday
