D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said Tuesday that the city’s indoor mask mandate will be lifted on Monday.
However, Miss Bowser said that doesn’t mean residents should stop wearing face masks.
Masks will still be mandated regardless of vaccination status in any private business that wants to require it, on public transport and in schools, dorms, correctional facilities, libraries, child care facilities and city government facilities with direct interactions with the public.
As of Sunday, more than 65,600 residents have tested positive for COVID-19, and nearly 1,200 have died of the illness, city health data shows. About 63% of residents are fully vaccinated, and 76% are at least partially vaccinated as of Nov. 8.
