If you're headed out to grab some groceries or do some shopping in D.C., remember to grab a mask.
The District reinstated an indoor mask mandate early Saturday morning. Everyone over 2 is required to cover their face in indoor, public settings.
COVID-19 cases are on the rise. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends people mask indoors in D.C. due to substantial transmission of the virus.
Cases are up about 26% this week. About 61% of residents have at least one vaccine dose, according to CDC data.
“We will continue to do what is necessary to keep D.C. safe,” Mayor Muriel Bowser said at a press conference Thursday.
