Vendors in the Municipal Fish Market at The Wharf in Southwest D.C. are being told to close by Mayor Muriel Bowser's office after large crowds gathered there on Saturday were not observing social distancing guidelines.

The Wharf Community Association said in a statement that there would only be accessed allowed to the area for people's homes, offices, hotels and businesses.

City officials said that businesses can reopen if they present a plan for social distancing and safe practices to the D.C. Restaurant Association.
