The impact of COVID-19 on D.C.

In D.C. I have noticed a large amount of work is being done with the infrastructure. There are a variety of construction projects involving roads, sidewalk improvements, and housing developments. I have also seen a rise in the number of emergency no parking zones established throughout the city. I think the city should use this rise in construction work to prioritize giving jobs to residents who have lost income due to COVID-19.

The city should also provide incentives to people who are interested in working in e-commerce such as online businesses. 

D.C. could also do more to offset transportation costs for people who are burdened with the cost of gas for commuting to work. This could involve expanding the Bike Share Program in DC to include more e-scooters which is good for exercise. And by encouraging the use of more public transportation we could lower emissions which is good for the planet.
