    National Park Service properties and visitors centers are closed,  however, the sites and land in the Boston National Historical Park are not  closed as they are owned and operated by other entities including the City of  Boston and non-profit organizations.


      Federal air traffic  controllers remain on the job and airport screeners will keep funneling  passengers through security checkpoints, though some airports have warned of  delays at security. Federal inspectors continue enforcing safety rules.

      The State  Department  continues processing foreign applications for visas and US applications for  passports, since fees are collected to finance those services.
