Stage one includes outdoor restaurant service and curbside pick-up for non-essential retail. Beauty salons and barbershops will be allowed to operate by appointment only and up to 10 people will be permitted to gather for worship.
The ReOpen DC Advisory Group presented a full outline of their recommendations for reopening during a news briefing on Thursday. The recommendations detail a four-phase process.
DC businesses will be provided with a checklist from the ReOpen DC Advisory group tomorrow.
The District's stay-at-home order is currently in place until June 8, but the mayor is expected to provide an update next Tuesday, May 26.
