D.C. Mayor Backs Down after Lawsuit, Loosens Restrictions on Churches

On Wednesday, less than a week after the archdiocese filed a suit in federal court against the city over restrictions on houses of worship, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser loosened restrictions on churches by issuing an order allowing them to hold services with 25 percent capacity or up to 250 individuals, whichever is less.
