Washington D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser (D) has now announced that her city will finally be ending both its vaccine mandate and its mask mandate.
The Details: D.C.’s vaccine mandate will officially be expiring this week and the mandate for masks indoors will end on March 1st.
Bowser justified the move by citing the decreased number of hospitalizations and deaths in the district.
“COVID is not as deadly as it was” Bowser said.
Full masking of students will still be required in D.C. schools however, a requirement which has drawn the ire of many parents.
