D.C. leaders laid out a new timetable Wednesday evening for when the city could begin to reopen. During an hourlong virtual town hall, Dr. LaQuandra Nesbitt, director of the D.C. Department of Health, walked through a slide show on what she called a “most-stringent” and “less stringent” plan. Under the most-stringent plan, which would be a worst-case scenario, D.C.
Under the most-stringent plan, which would be a worst-case scenario, D.C. would not be able to reopen for at least another three months, Nesbitt said.
Under the least-stringent plan, which would be a best-case scenario, the city would do a phased reopening, but that also would not begin for at least two months.
Right now, D.C.’s stay-at-home order is set to expire May 15.
Under the most stringent plan, D.C. might reopen in three months. In a better case scenario, reopening might begin in two months. https://t.co/T8BXrV1N81
