The Washington Convention Center will treat patients with mild to moderate symptoms.

(Washington, DC)  —  DC Mayor Muriel Bowser says without a vaccine, opening the city will allow the virus to spread.  The DC Health Department says a level of widespread community transmission remains.  The mayor failed to comment on extending the stay-at-home order.  Officials urge residents to get tested and to isolate themselves if they test positive.  The mayor toured the Washington Convention Center today where a COVID-19 surge center is now reading for patients.  437 beds are set up at the Convention Center.
