On August 21, 2020, the D.C. Policy Center’s article, How COVID-19 is affecting small businesses in D.C., was cited in an opinion piece in the Washington Post:

As a local business owner who has lived and worked in the D.C. area for 35 years, I’ve seen the incredible growth of this city. Local businesses are the heart of our communities, especially those that bring people together. Restaurants, retailers, day cares, hotels, and sports and entertainment venues make up this now-endangered social economy that has been shattered by the pandemic and restrictions necessary to protect us.
