Months into the coronavirus pandemic, things can still change by the day and sometimes by the hour. On Thursday, news broke that Washington, D.C. - which had a stay-at-home order extended to June 8 - may, in fact, be ready to reopen much sooner than expected.
D.C. Major Muriel Bowser revealed at a press conference that May 29 is now the day things may start opening up. This is due to an eight-day decrease in cases of Covid-19.
Among many effects this could have, it may lead to the Washington Wizards getting back to business sooner than we thought. They were prepared to reopen their practice facility in mid-May for individual workouts before Bowser announced the June 8 extension.
Bowser is expected to offer more specifics next week. Until then, we don't know exactly what type of business and buildings can reopen and in what capacity.
But moving the first reopen date up 10 days can only help the cause of the Wizards and everyone else waiting on word from the city to open their doors.
