District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser defended her decision to ban dancing at wedding receptions Wednesday; saying all guests must “be seated” for the event to be considered “safe” during the COVID pandemic.
“You’re re-opening DC. It’s getting a lot of attention. You’re opening on May 1st,” asked a reporter with CNN. “Standing and Dancing are not allowed at weddings. What good is a wedding without dancing?”
D.C. @MayorBowser defends her ban on dancing: "An alternate headline may be, ‘Now You Can Host a Wedding in Washington, D.C.’ … And just like our restaurant guidelines suggest is that you have to be seated to enjoy the restaurant." pic.twitter.com/e2gILPVpNu

“I think there’s a lot of good at a wedding! Let me be clear: On May 1st we’re proud of our businesses that made conditions such that we could open up these facilities,” said the Mayor.
“You can have friends and family over, at hotels, and restaurants. You have to be seated,” she added.

'ROUTINE ERROR': 6,700 North Carolina Residents ‘Incorrectly Told They Have Coronavirus’ via Text
Nearly 7,000 residents in North Carolina were told via text message last week that they tested positive for the Coronavirus despite not actually having contracted the disease.
“More than 6,700 individuals in Mecklenburg County in North Carolina were told in a text message sent from Mecklenburg County Health Department on Friday that they tested positive for COVID-19 and over 500 people were told through a county email that they were also infected with the novel coronavirus. But the results were incorrect due to a technical error by Health Space, the company they use for contact tracing, according to a statement on the county’s website,” reports Fox News.
“An error during routine maintenance last Friday resulted in a county data vendor sending erroneous texts and email messages to people saying they were positive for COVID-19,” the statement on the county website said.
“Very quickly we began to work with the vendor to understand the issue and make sure that it did not continue. Once corrected we were told that 6,727 text messages and 541 emails were sent to individuals who were already in their system. We then worked with the vendor to send a corrected text/email to all that received the erroneous one,” the email stated in part.
