DC mayor declares state of emergency due to coronavirus

Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) declared a state of emergency Wednesday after six additional cases of the coronavirus were confirmed, bringing the District’s tally to 10 cases. The announcement will help free up resources and funding to combat the virus and also gives the mayor the authority to order quarantines without court approval for someone who has made contact with positive cases.
