“Dear PoPville,

I live near several hotels that are now open again and I’m seeing lots of out of state license plates (more so around the 4th of July but a steady stream since). I often see people coming out of the hotels or congregating outside the hotels not wearing masks, not wearing them properly, and not social distancing.

I saw an entire extended family with kids, parents, aunts, uncles, and grandparents (about 12 total) pile into a white van with Florida plates. They didn’t have masks on and were congregating outside my building on the sidewalk.

With many states now requiring 14-day mandatory quarantines for anyone traveling from high-case states, has DC considered implementing a similar mandatory quarantine period for travelers? How would they even go about enforcing that?”
