D.C. relaxed some of its coronavirus pandemic regulations Monday in the wake of positively trending public health metrics over the past few weeks.
The changes, announced last week, include:
– Restaurants can open for indoor dining at 25% capacity or up to 250 people. Standing at bar areas will be prohibited. The District will reexamine capacity in early April and determine whether live music can be played at restaurants at that time.
– Alcohol can be sold at restaurants from 6 a.m. to midnight.
– Movie theaters can open up to 25 customers or 25% per auditorium, whichever is lower.
– Indoor fitness classes can resume with up to 10 people, and outdoor courses up to 50. Gyms can have up to 25% capacity or up to 250 people, whichever is lower.
– Businesses can start applying for live-entertainment waivers.
– Guided tours can resume at museums and galleries.
