Updated Mask Guidance as of July 29, 2021
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced that masks will be required indoors in the District, regardless of vaccination status. The new mask order takes effect Saturday, July 31st at 5 a.m. and is designed to minimize further spread of the virus, particularly the Delta variant. This new requirement will apply to everyone 2 years of age and older. The mask requirement does not apply to any person while consuming food or drink. There have been no further discussions or guidance suggesting additional rollbacks or restrictions such as capacity limits.
While not mandated, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam announced shortly after that masks are recommended and encouraged for individuals indoors in public settings where there is an increased risk of COVID-19 transmission.  
There are no other restrictions in place at this time.
