USNPS will close much of National Mall around Biden inauguration as domestic terrorists threaten US

The National Park Service (NPS) announced that it is temporarily closing most parts of the National Mall beginning Friday through at least the day after President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next week.

The announcement comes after the agency initially said Thursday that it had not yet made a final decision on closures after news outlets reported that the entire area would be restricted due to security concerns surrounding inaugural ceremonies.
