The start of Phase Two is based on the Department of Health’s (DOH) evaluation of certain gated criteria. These are consistent with criteria recommended by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and DOH’s determination that the District has met applicable metrics that enable us to reduce certain restrictions on businesses, government operations, services, and activities. In general, the move from Phase One to Phase Two means that we have moved from substantial, controlled transmission where significant mitigation steps were warranted, to minimal to moderate community transmission, where moderate mitigation steps are warranted. See more details.
