(Washington, DC) – Today, Mayor Muriel Bowser issued Mayor’s Order 2020-063 to extend the state of emergency and public health emergency for Washington, DC through May 15, 2020, as the District continues to fight the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Mayor extended the emergencies and issued new health and safety requirements in an effort to protect vulnerable populations during the COVID-19 public health emergency. The new order clarifies that face masks are required for:

  • hotel workers, guests, and visitors;
  • individuals using taxis, ride shares, private transportation providers;
  • workers and customers of food sellers; and
  • strongly encouraged for workers and individuals using public transit.

Individuals living, working, and visiting Washington, DC should continue to stay at home, only leaving for essential purposes. If leaving their residence, all individuals must continue to social distance from others not in their household, and should wear face coverings if visiting essential businesses, such as grocery stores and pharmacies. Masks are not a replacement for social distancing. Non-essential businesses remain closed, and DC students will continue to learn at home.
