The cherry blossoms around the Tidal Basin have reached peak bloom. The National Park Service says they made it to the final stage yesterday after reaching stage-five just one day before. People are being encouraged to stay away from the Tidal Basin to help slow the spread of COVID-19. N-P-S officials originally predicted peak bloom to begin on Friday.
