Mayor Muriel Bowser has ordered another 30-day extension of the state of emergency currently active in the District of Columbia. Federal officials are concerned that an outbreak as bad as the one seen in New York City could occur and cripple the government. A military task force that is assigned the act of evacuating officials has already been activated and is on standby. Their mission would be to move key government officials to a secure location in case of an attack. Known as the Joint Task Force National Capital Region, they were activated on March 16th and is prepared to protect the capital by land, air, and sea.
