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.

Modified Measures for Spring/Summer 2021 of Washington, DC Reopening and Extension of Public and Public Health Emergencies.

The District will now fall in line with the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions’s mask recommendations: if you’re fully vaccinated, you don’t need to wear a mask outdoors or in places where it isn’t required. D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced the change during a Monday press conference with one caveat: if a business has a sign that tells you to wear a mask, wear it. The order, which is in effect as of Monday, says masks are still required for public transit, taxis and ride hailing services, airports, train stations, schools and daycares, healthcare settings, workplaces (if applicable), homeless shelters, and correctional facilities. Those that are not fully vaccinated, which is two weeks after a final dose, should still wear masks.

Many coronavirus restrictions will be lifted on Friday, May 21, including capacity restrictions and limits on bars and churches. The District plans to lift all restrictions on June 11.

Capacity restrictions on restaurants, non-essential stores, places of worship, office spaces, schools and several other types of sites will be lifted Friday. Bars and nightclubs will be able to operate at 50% capacity starting then. Capacity restrictions will be dropped for bars, nightclubs and large sports and entertainment venues June 11.

By June 7, up to 50% of D.C. government employees will return to work in their offices, Bowser said last week. By July 12, all employees will be required to be back at work.

Dancing also will be allowed again.

Capital One Arena, which hosts the Capitals and Wizards, increased its capacity to 25% Friday. Starting June 11, the arena will be at full capacity.

Nationals Park and Audi Field expanded seating to 36% Friday.

Outside dining in streets will remain for now. Bowser has proposed keeping the "streateries" in place for at least two years.

The public health state of emergency will not be rescinded yet, for logistical purposes and so D.C. is still eligible for federal reimbursement, the mayor said last week.

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.
