D.C. Ban on Indoor Dining Begins Wednesday Night

The Bowser administration’s ban on indoor dining in D.C. restaurants and bars amid recent surges in coronavirus cases goes into effect Wednesday at 10 p.m.

The temporary ban, part of an executive order issued by Mayor Muriel Bowser last week, lasts until Jan. 15 and aims to curtail the spread of the virus.

Outdoor dining, with the exception of a snow emergency, will be permitted, along with carryout and delivery orders.

The city health department says restaurants and bars account for 14 percent of the coronavirus outbreaks between August and November, WUSA-TV (Channel 9) reported.

The administration has launched a Bridge Fund program supported with $35 million to help restaurants and bars keep their employees and stay open while the pandemic persists.

As of Wednesday, D.C. has 27,226 coronavirus cases and 751 virus-related deaths, according to health department statistics.
