Muriel Elizabeth Bowser (born August 2, 1972) is an American politician serving as the eighth Mayor of the District of Columbia since 2015. A member of the Democratic Party, she previously represented Ward 4 as a member of the Council of the District of Columbia from 2007 to 2015. She is the second female Mayor of the District of Columbia after Sharon Pratt, and the first woman to be reelected to that position.
LGBTQ D.C. residents are among those who may cancel or postpone vacations to Rehoboth Beach and other Delaware shore areas in response to Mayor Muriel Bowser’s order last week to require city residents to self-quarantine for 14 days when they return from “non-essential” travel to states considered at high-risk for contracting the coronavirus.
In a statement released on Monday, the D.C. Department of Health listed Delaware as one of 27 high-risk states from which District residents would have to self-quarantine for 14 days upon their return if their travel is deemed non-essential.
