WASHINGTON (WDVM) — D.C. Mayor Bowser reports 31 new positive COVID-19 cases in the District.

Officials say there is currently no timeline on moving the District into phase three but COVID-19 cases are being closely monitored in order to have a safe reopening.

Bowser recommends residents celebrate the Fourth of July at home in small groups. District residents are reminded that large gatherings are still a high-risk activity even while outside. It is important to still practice social distancing and take the proper steps to limit the spread of COVID-19:

  • Wear a mask in public
  • Practice social distancing
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Stay home when you are sick
