Bowser Orders Face Masks to be Worn in the District

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser on Wednesday ordered District residents and those who patron businesses and work in the city to wear face masks to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
“If you are outside, you should wear a mask,” Bowser said at a press conference. “If you are waiting on the bus, you should have a mask on, if you are ordering food, you should be wearing a mask and if you are sitting in an office in your cubicle surrounded by people, you should wear a mask.”
Bowser’s mandate has exceptions such as for children under the age of three, people who are engaged in vigorous exercise and aren’t close to others, people who are actively eating and drinking and those who are enclosed alone in an office.
Bowser issued the order as the D.C. Department of Health reported 102 new positive coronavirus cases on Tuesday, bringing the city’s overall positive case total to 11,529.
The District reported no deaths on Tuesday, according to the health department, although 580 residents have died from COVID-19.
