President James K, Polk State State Historic Site will close to visitors until Dec. 10.
Due to a recent exposure to COVID-19, the facilities will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, and site employees with potential exposure to the virus will self-quarantine for 14 days following N.C. Dept. of Health and Human Services and CDC guidelines.
Because President James K Polk State Historic Site has only a few full-time employees, the site will be closed until employees are able to return to work.
Any needed contact tracing will be managed by the Mecklenburg County Health Department.
