On August 19, the DC CIty Administrator’s Office (CAO) quietly issued a new order announcing that as of Aug. 20, masks are no longer required to be worn inside some city government buildings and offices.

These include the DC Public Libraries (DCPL), District Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) and Department of Human Services (DHS). District agencies may still recommend members of the public wear masks in agency offices and areas where there is direct interaction between District government employees and members of the public.

The order was flagged on twitter by food news blogger eat_dc,

Masks are still required in District correctional facilities, shleters and Department of Aging and Community Living (DACL) facilities or programs. They are also required while inside a vehicle used for a DMV road test.

The order is in effect until Nov. 25 of this year. It supersedes the requirements as stated in a June 17 order that expired Aug. 19.
