Communities across the Washington region have begun to shake loose from some of the restrictions put in place to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. But the action plans released by each government varied with respect to which locations and businesses would open, a reflection of how the virus has landed differently across the region.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) announced the state will move into Phase 3 on July 1, allowing more businesses to operate at full capacity while also maintaining physical distancing. The state moved fully into Phase 2 on June 12 after the D.C. suburbs and the city of Richmond joined the rest of the state in further loosening restrictions on businesses, churches, public recreation spots and other locations. The District entered Phase 2 on Monday.

As of mid-June, a broad variety of nonessential businesses and outdoor activities could resume across Maryland. Although the state left many decisions to local communities, most jurisdictions have adopted Gov. Larry Hogan’s plan. Prince George’s and Montgomery counties adopted modified versions of the plan, although Prince George’s moved fully to Phase 2 on Monday. Below is a chart of some of the rules regarding reopening in the region.

But first, what hasn’t changed: Social distancing measures remain in place. The District, Maryland and Virginia require masks in indoor public spaces and on public transportation, and public gatherings are still limited.
