Do you have any idea about when it will be possible purchase NARA materials again?

No, everyone has to watch their status page about their specific locations in the US.

NARA College Park’s page still says closed:

https://www.archives.gov/college-park

Also, on this general page:
https://www.archives.gov/coronavirus

1/2 way down is a section called “Agency Memoranda for Employees”. If you expand the [ + ], the memos about certain buildings opening or closing are listed here. A new memo every 1-2 weeks. This will be an indirect indication since this is just about letting the employees return, not the public, including contractor-for-hire researchers.

Unfortunately the state of Maryland seems to be slower than average in getting enough people vaccinated and virus infection cases down so they can meet the reopening guidelines.

Good news from NARA:

"Separately, NARA has allowed some federal employees to return to work full-time in NARA and this is seen as a major step towards reopening."
