If you're based in Washington D.C. then you might not like this news, as Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser has just signed an executive order on Wednesday that requires DC residents to wear masks outside of their home.

The move has been done to stem COVID-19 coronavirus cases, with Bowser explaining in a press conference: "Basically what it says is, if you leave home, you should wear a mask. This means, if you're waiting for a bus, you must have on a mask. If you are ordering food at a restaurant, you must have on a mask. If you're sitting in a cubicle in an open office, you must have on a mask".

You will be fined $1000 per violation, while the new rules do not apply to children that are under the age of 3 -- as well as people who are eating or drinking.
