D.C. Lifting Contact Tracing Requirements for Restaurants, Bars

Ruling Takes Effect Friday

Contact tracing on patrons at D.C. restaurants and bars will end Friday, the city’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Board decided this week.

The board’s unanimous decision Wednesday removes the last of the District’s coronavirus-related restrictions on food and drink establishments.

The ruling was the last step needed to fully open the city’s nightlife scene that has floundered during the pandemic, particularly nightclubs, which were closed for much of the pandemic and are currently limited to 50% capacity.

Approximately 52% of District residents are now partially or fully vaccinated. The city reported a 37% decline in new cases over the past week.
