District of Columbia adds North Dakota to COVID-19 high risk list



Washington, D.C., is the latest city to place North Dakota on its list of high-risk COVID-19 states, according to information from Mayor Muriel Bowser’s office.

On Friday, Mayor Bowser issued Mayor’s Order 2020-081, with requirements for all people traveling into Washington, DC from high-risk states. High-risk states are states where the seven-day moving average of daily new COVID-19 cases is 10 or more per 100,000 persons.

Beginning Monday, anyone entering Washington, D.C., from a high-risk state within the past 14 days, who was traveling for non-essential activities, is required to self-quarantine for 14 days. Those traveling for essential activities are required to self-monitor themselves for symptoms.
