“Today, through a City Administrator Order, the policy for wearing face masks within DC Government buildings was updated. Under the new policy, which becomes effective Monday, July 12, DC Government employees and contractors who are fully vaccinated will only be required to wear a face covering when:

Interacting in person with a member of the public, including customers, constituents, clients, and patients;
In a space in a District government building where members of the public are routinely present, such as a customer service area or a public-serving area in a library or recreation center, when such space is open to the public;
In a shelter for individuals experiencing homelessness, a correctional facility, or another congregate facility;
In a school or other educational facility or setting;
In a childcare or healthcare facility or setting;
Required to wear a mask by a specific entity or establishment; or
On public transportation where the wearing of a mask is required.

Employees who are not fully vaccinated must continue to wear a face covering while in DC Government buildings, inside any other building, and outside and likely to be within six feet of other people. All DC Government employees are required to provide their vaccination status and attest to being “Fully Vaccinated” before following the guidance for fully vaccinated employees.

Members of the public will continue to be required to wear face coverings while in DC Government buildings.”
