From the Mayor’s Office:

“On Monday, August 24, DC Health released an updated list of high-risk states where the seven-day moving average of daily new COVID-19 cases is 10 or more per 100,000 persons. Mayor Bowser issued Mayor’s Order 2020-081 with requirements for all people traveling into Washington, DC from high-risk states.

Today, DC Health removed Delaware from the list of high-risk states. When DC Health created the most recent list, the posted data indicated that Delaware met the requirements of a high-risk state. Since then, the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services has provided DC Health with updated data. Epidemiologists from the two health agencies reviewed this matter to understand how Delaware’s publicly available data and the Delaware Department’s latest data could allow for this revision.

Thanks to Justin for sending this magnificent specimen:

AWESTRUCK!

The house ain’t bad either.

If you spot a hawk or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send where you spotted it to [email protected] and I’ll add it to the queue. Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.

Thanks to Trinidad resident Grant for sending this desperately needed photo today. While it comes from his trip to Japan and not D.C. given this dreary morning I’ll take it! And to be clear the pig is indeed enjoying a beer with a smile a mile wide and apparently drank the entire beer. Obviously.
