The Mayor of Washington, D.C., issued a quarantine order today for travelers coming from designated states. Don’t worry, though — it doesn’t affect your favorite lawmakers.

Oh, the horror! Universal has canceled its Halloween Horror Nights on both coasts.

Those are some of the travel stories I thought you, too, may find interesting today.

Washington, D.C., Travel Quarantine

Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser ordered a 14-day quarantine for any resident of the District or other travelers arriving from a coronavirus hotspot. Lawmakers, however, aren’t included in the ban. (Otherwise, they may have to spend time with their constituents! 🙂 )

 

The order kicks in Monday, July 27 at 12:01 AM. But according to the press release announcing Her Honor’s mandate, “A list of ‘high-risk areas’ will be posted by the DC Department of Health on Monday, July 27, 2020, and will be updated every two weeks on coronavirus.dc.gov.”

So some travelers will have a hitch in their travels when they land in D.C. early next week. Though I bet the roster of affected states will mirror — or very closely resemble — New York’s naughty list.

  1. This order means nothing! DCA airport is in Virginia.
    IAD Is in Virginia.
    BWI is in Maryland.
    DC has no commercial airports.
    So this order is meaningless and is unenforceable.

      Airports feed hotels, they’ll get their pound of flesh. The exemption or exclusion of lawmakers is shameful.
      The list of distinctions between elected officials and we the people has become the very “separate” or “elite” class distinction that wise men have always warned of.
      Of course the DC Mayor is not a member of Congress but it still stinks.
