BALTIMORE — The longest government shutdown in U.S. history is over and Fort McHenry is once again open for visitors.

The park officially reopened Sunday with all regular operations back on schedule.

The National Park Service says it's working on reopening all of its parks as quickly as possible.

However, according to an Associated Press report, there may be a delay in some openings because of staffing and other complexities of getting back open.
