DC to Require Travelers from Hotspots to Quarantine

Starting on Monday, July 27th, travelers to Washington, DC from COVID-19 hotspots will be required to quarantine for 14 days.  DC Mayor Muriel Bowser made the announcement today during a news conference.

Bowser said this is an attempt to reduce the risk of coronavirus spread as the city wrestles with a spike in infections.  Maryland and Virginia are not included in the hotspot quarantine order. College students from out of town must also quarantine.  The order will stay in effect until at least October 9th but could be extended.
