Core Banks Closed?

Occurred to me that the place where we once lived as lawless squatters might actually be “closed” during this federal shutdown.
According to a newspaper article:
Cape Lookout Superintendent Pat Kenny was at the Harkers Island Visitor Center Tuesday as NPS staff and volunteers prepped the park for closure. The staff had to notify all visitors to the park they had to leave, including ones that were staying out on the islands.
“The park is effectively closed to all visitors,” Mr. Kenney said. “The visitors aren’t happy. Some of these folks have been planning this (visit) for a year. As an agency, we’re disappointed; there’s a lot of benefits to the local community to have a park, but without an appropriation, we can’t work.”
So, I’m assuming the entire Core Banks are closed…though I’m not sure how you keep people with boats away when there’s no one working.
