The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum reopened on Friday after being closed for three-plus months due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The famous landmark located in Cooperstown, N.Y., was allowed to reopen as its
region -- known as the Mohawk Valley -- entered Phase Four of the state's
reopening plan.

The Hall of Fame's website indicated that all staff members and guests are
required to wear masks. Social distancing of 6 feet will also be expected, and
the Hall is limiting the museum capacity to ensure the regulation is followed.
