D.C.’s Stay-at-Home Order Extended to June 8

Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser extended the District of Columbia’s stay-at-home order through June 8, while noting that she could lift it earlier if conditions warrant doing so. The previous order, issued last month, was due to expire on May 15.

“The continued sacrifices by residents and businesses are saving lives and helping us get to the other side of this incredibly difficult time for our city,” said Bowser. “Together, by staying home a little longer, soon we will be able to reopen D.C. safely and sustainably.”

Bowser on Wednesday outlined several criteria based on federal guidance that the District must meet before beginning phased reopening. These include a 14-day sustained decrease in community spread of COVID-19, improved testing capacity, a seven-day period of the District’s hospitals running at less than 80% of capacity, and improved contract tracing capacity.
