BOULDER CITY, Nev. (AP) - The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is reopening Hoover Dam to the public on Tuesday, seven months after it closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Federal officials say visitors will be able to access all open areas and visit the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge plaza and walkway.

The visitor center will remain closed with no tours or exhibits available.

Visitors to the dam at the Nevada-Arizona border are being asked to follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines when it comes to preventing the spread of the coronavirus.
