Muriel Bowser noted that newlyweds should not put themselves and guests at risk of infection.
On April 26, Bowser announced that weddings can be held in Washington again, but with a limited number of guests and without dancing, since this activity is associated with a high risk of contracting the coronavirus.
During an interview with CNN, Bowser was asked why dancing is not allowed at wedding events.
“I think there’s a lot of good in weddings – people start their lives together and do it safely, without putting themselves or their guests in danger,” she said. “It would be possible to present this news differently: now it is possible to hold weddings in Washington,” Bowser added.
