The Mayor of the District of Columbia, Muriel Bowser, announces in this bulletin the reopening of the nation’s capital at a time when infection figures have dropped significantly.
According to data compiled by The Washington Post, the percentage of fully vaccinated citizens in the capital is 34.2 percent.
The local government maintains twelve vaccination points open for which no appointment is required and has promoted numerous campaigns to convince people of the importance of getting immunized.
In updating its data on the pandemic, the local government insists on requesting that preventive measures be maintained, such as wearing a mask and maintaining hand hygiene, which it also asks of those vaccinated, although it does not mention the need for a social distance of 1.8 meters.
