Bliss staying open in DC. I thought it holds more than 250. Is that just a recommendation from the mayor?

New rules for licensed DC nightclubs today. Will have to shut down. But if licensed as a tavern or bar , can stay open with new rules re serving beer. Folks must sit at tables with no buying of beer at bar. Tables must be set a distance apart from one another!
