DC Mayor Declares Public Emergency, Set To Be Lifted After Biden Is Sworn In


Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser declared a public emergency Wednesday and extended it to last until the day after President-elect Joe Biden is due to be sworn into office.

I have issued Mayor’s Order 2021-003, extending the public emergency declared earlier today for a total of 15 days, until and unless provided for by further Mayoral Order.
