D.C. Lifts Mask Mandate, Capacity Limits for Most Places

D.C. lifted most of its coronavirus restrictions and capacity limits as of 5 a.m. Friday.

The move to lift mask mandates is in line with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and by order of Mayor Muriel Bowser under the advisement of D.C. Health Director LaQuandra S. Nesbitt.

People who are vaccinated won’t have to wear masks in most places and are free to social distance when they choose. Masks must be worn while riding public transportation, in health care settings, schools, homeless shelters, correctional facilities and at indoor and outdoor sporting events.

Additionally, businesses can require customers and employees to wear masks.

Restaurants, places of worship, gyms, pools, libraries, weddings and special events have had their capacity restrictions lifted. The city’s bars and nightclubs still operate under a 50% capacity limit.

On June 11, capacity limits in the city will be eliminated entirely, including those on large entertainment venues, WTOP reported.
