D.C. Enters Phase Two of Reopening Amid Pandemic

D.C. began the second phase of its reopening plan Monday amid the coronavirus pandemic after 15 days of sustained decrease in community spread.

Mayor Muriel Bowser on Friday announced the new conditions, which include limiting mass gatherings to 50 people and allowing nonessential businesses to permit indoor shopping, but only at 50% capacity. Child care centers, museums and the National Zoo can reopen, but with similar restrictions.

Other phase two guidelines:

– Tanning, tattoo, waxing, threading, electrolysis, cryotherapy, facial, and nail salons may open by appointment only.
– Indoor dining will be allowed provided restaurants do not exceed 50 percent capacity.
– Gyms, health clubs, and yoga, dance, and workout studios may open in accordance with guidance from DC Health.
– DPR Pools may open for structured activities, including lessons and lap swimming, and apartment and condo pools may open in accordance with guidance.
– Playgrounds, courts and fields will open, and low- and moderate-contact sports will be allowed.
– Houses of worship are encouraged to continue virtual services, but indoor capacity limits will be adjusted to no more than 100 persons or 50 percent of capacity, whichever is less.
– Camps may open with no more than 10 persons in a cohort and with social distancing protocols and other safeguards.
– Libraries may reopen at 50 percent capacity.

In all cases, social distancing measures are still required where applicable.

As of Monday, the District reported 10,058 confirmed coronavirus cases, including 535 related deaths.
