Entire DMV Under Stay-at-Home Orders

 (Monday, March 30, 2020) –  As the coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc across the DMV, local officials instituted new measures to slow the spread.  DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan and Virginia Governor Ralph Northam today issued stay-at-home executive orders.  “We are no longer asking, we’re directing” said Hogan at a morning press conference in Annapolis.

The move by the three local leaders comes as the Washington region is seeing a spike in the number of COVID-19 cases now approaching 3,000 infections. The stay-at-home order for DC goes in to effect April 1st. Virginia’s mandate immediately went into effect.  Maryland’s order is effective at 8pm.  The orders bar residents from being out except for essential business like grocery shopping, picking up medicine, or other medical needs.
