Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser extended the city’s indoor mask mandate through the end of February. 

The mandate was originally set to expire at the end of January, Just the News reports

Bowser will also extend the city’s limited, public-health emergency through the middle of next month. 

“Although the surge of infections relating to the Omicron variant appears to be abating, the stress on hospitals and medical providers and facilities continues,” Bowser said. “Hospitalizations and deaths lag infections, so the District is facing increases in hospitalized patients with COVID-19, increased ventilator use by persons with COVID-19, and more deaths than the District experienced at the beginning of January.”
