District of Columbia, Washington DC Health Department @_dchealth DC Health Department - 202-442-5955 ReOpen DC is about working together as a community to reopen Washington, DC in a way that is safe and sustainable. Together, we will create a plan that is based in science and tailored to the needs of our community. Wednesday, October 7, 2020 (Washington, DC) – Today, Mayor Muriel Bowser issued Mayor’s Order 2020-103 to extend the District’s public emergency and public health emergency and issue additional measures for Phase Two. Under the Order, the public emergency and public health emergency are extended through December 31, 2020. D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has instituted a new travel advisory that requires people who visit D.C. to get a coronavirus test 72 hours before traveling to the city. The advisory also asks that people who have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus not to travel to the District. The testing requirements apply to people who are coming from jurisdictions designated as “high risk” because of their coronavirus caseloads. People who visit the city for more than three days are also required to get tested for the virus within three to five days of their arrival. The new travel advisory, which goes into effect on Monday, Nov. 9, will replace the city’s current policy of requiring people to quarantine for 14 days when traveling to D.C. from high risk states. During Phase Two of reopening, mass gatherings of more than 50 people are prohibited, and nonessential travel outside of the National Capital Region continues to be discouraged. If you attend a mass gathering, including recent ongoing protests, DC Health recommends that you follow the steps below to help prevent the spread of the virus in the home and community. Schools pursuing in-person activities should be implement the following measures in order to help reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission among students and staff. When to Wear a Cloth Face Covering or a Mask • You must wear a cloth face covering or mask when outdoors and coming into contact with another person outside of your household, such as being within six (6) feet. • You must wear a cloth face covering or mask when inside of a business, office building, gym or other establishment open to the members of the public. You must also wear a mask in the common areas of apartments, condominiums and cooperatives. • You must wear a cloth face covering or mask when riding in a taxi, ride-share, or on public transportation. • Wearing a cloth face covering or mask does not take away the need for social distancing or other everyday precautions like staying at home when you are sick, and frequent hand hygiene. • A face shield is not an acceptable alternative for wearing a cloth face covering or a mask.
