Safe in Public Space
Our public spaces have always provided residents, commercial district employees, and visitors alike with beautiful, unique, and unexpected opportunities to shop, stroll, eat, relax, and socialize. As we return to a sense of normalcy, we’re thrilled to welcome you back to Georgetown!
Face Mask & Vaccine Requirements
DC’s indoor mask mandate was lifted on March 1, 2022. However, any private business that wants to require the use of masks by its employees or customers may do so, and will indicate that requirement via signage posted in their storefront.
Thank you for your cooperation, and ensuring Georgetown is a safe and comfortable place for all!
DC has lifted the indoor vaccination requirement. Businesses may choose to keep vaccination requirements in place, and must post signage in their storefronts if this is the case. Employers may also choose to require employee vaccination.
Streateries & Sidewalk Extension
The Georgetown BID has worked with over 30 restaurants and the city to permit outdoor “Streateries” throughout the commercial district. Now you can still get the full Georgetown restaurant experience while enjoying your meal outside. Bonus: Some amazing people watching.

Georgetown Decks Sidewalk Extension
More space to dine, shop, stroll & stay awhile!
The Georgetown BID built 3,400 linear feet of sidewalk deck panels on M Street between 34th Street and 29th Street, and on Wisconsin Avenue between Q Street and the Canal. The Georgetown Decks provide a more welcoming experience for outdoor dining, and create even more space for pedestrians to safely and comfortably walk through Georgetown.
Our hardworking Clean Team continues to clean and sanitize all of our public spaces and furnishings throughout the day.
