COVID-19 News & Updates

COVID-19 Informational Updates - Nov 27

- Compiled by Village member Carren Kaston
 

Changes in Free Covid-19 Testing Schedule

  • The city has made changes to the free Covid-19 testing offered at the firehouse north of us 4930 Connecticut Avenue NW, which is Engine House 31.

  • Testing will now be offered at Engine House 31 for extended hours: 2:30 - 7:30 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. This is to accommodate the greater number of people who now want to be tested. The wait time for results is still 3-5 business days.

  • In addition, testing will be offered on the Sunday after Thanksgiving from 12-4 pm.

  • Also starting this week, the District hopes to collect insurance information in an effort to recover the testing costs from insurance companies. However, the tests will remain free and no one will be turned away or charged to be tested here.

Please note that the city urges people to go to the DC Covid website to pre-register for the test.  Click on "testing" and scroll down to Engine House 31, then click on the link to register.

Tips for avoiding COVID-19 Scams

  • Ignore calls or texts from unknown or suspicious numbers

  • Never give anyone your financial or personal information via e-mail, text messages, or over the phone.

  • Recognize warning signs: hang up the phone if you're being pressured to share any information or make an immediate payment.

  • Do not click on links you receive via text message. If a friend messages you with a link that seems suspicious or out of character, call them to see if they've been hacked.

  • Always research a charity before donating. You can do this by calling them or visiting their website. Click here to learn more about charity scams.
