Citing the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in Prince George’s County, Maryland, executives have enacted a weekend curfew for unaccompanied minors within the National Harbor Complex from Friday.

In a news release, county official Angela Arsaubrooks said unaccompanied minors have been spending the past few weeks in an entertainment and shopping complex without following public mask rules.

She called the increase in coronavirus cases a “concern.”

To limit the spread of the virus, unaccompanied minors (under 17 years old) are not allowed to enter National Harbor after 5 pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.Curfew ends at 6am

Adult companions can go out.

The county did not say when the curfew would end.

Dr. Ernest Carter, director of health at Prince George’s County, said interviews and contact tracing efforts have revealed that people who have recently been tested positive for the virus attended a large rally.

“We know that COVID-19 is widespread for people engaged in these high-risk activities, and it needs to be stopped,” he said in the release.

Just a week ago, one hotel in National Harbor was closed because it turned out to be accepting more residents than the room capacity.
