Coming to the inauguration? Bring toilet paper

Says the D.C. Department of Health. A press release from the department all but suggests "Stay Home" as it provides tips for preventing cold-weather-related problems.

The average January temperature in the district, the department notes, is 35 degrees. It recommends dressing in layers and covering head, hands and feet. "It’s smart to travel with an extra pair of wool socks on inauguration day," said Dr. Pierre Vigilance, the agency director, who also warns that attendees should be prepared to walk 2 or more miles to get to events.

Other tips: "Bring medication that can last up to 24 hours; be cautious about food handling and prepare an emergency medical card to carry. There's also "get vaccinated, inaugural attendees are coming from
around the world.." and "bring own toilet paper, more than 5,000 portable restrooms will be available for attendees..."

Snacks are recommended too. "Bring easily portable high-energy foods and snacks, the nearest food vendor may be inaccessible from your location."
