Washington, DC, to lift stay-at-home order on Friday

Source: The Hill

Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) announced Wednesday that the city will lift its stay-at-home order on Friday and enter phase one of reopening.

Bowser said that the virus is still circulating but said the city had met its metrics of a 14-day decline in community spread of the virus as well as adequate testing and hospital capacity.

Under the order, nonessential retail businesses can open for curbside pickup and hair salons can open for appointments only. Restaurants can serve diners outdoors if they already have outdoor seating and tables are 6 feet apart.


Gatherings of more than 10 people are still banned, and Bowser encouraged people to continue staying 6 feet apart, wearing masks when around others and washing hands frequently.

2. I wish criminals would stay home

We had 2 separate shootings in my neighborhood last night.

I suspect some folks will be cautious about going out and other would be more enthusiastic. I plan on continuing to stay at home as much as I can. Fortunately I can work from home and never felt so lucky to be bald.

3. The problem is that people won't focus on the details.

It's a very measured phase one opening, but I fear that people are going to think they can just go back to normal.
