The CDC is developing a "revised policy framework" for when masks should be required on transit systems, according to a U.

S. official.



In an interview with Eyewitness News anchor Bill Ritter, the outgoing commissioner reflected on the toll the pandemic has taken on all of us.

"The stress and the grief and the trauma that everyone has gone through in their own ways so it's hard not to get emotional when you think about all those effects and the loss that so many people have experienced," Dr. Chokshi said.

SEE IT: DC buses reserve seat for Rosa Parks Day


Buses across Washington, D.C.'s metro system are reserving a seat Thursday in honor of Rosa Parks.

Dec. 1 is Rosa Parks Day, the 67th anniversary of when the civil rights leader refused to leave her seat to make room for white passengers on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Parks was famously arrested for violating the state's segregation laws, which sparked a nationwide boycott of buses.

The actual bus Parks rode on will be on display at the Anacostia Metro Station for tours.
