Coronavirus/COVID-19 Updates

DC Residents

April 24, 2020

Please help spread the word: free COVID-19 testing is available for DC residents. 

Health care providers across the District have free testing for COVID-19 and the District is operating free testing sites at the United Medical Center in Ward 8 and at the UDC Bertie Backus campus in Ward 5. (A list of testing locations can be found on  We are sending out information by mail and making phone calls, but we also ask that when you call seniors in your life, give them the phone number for our COVID-19 testing hotline:  1-855-363-0333.  In order to flatten the curve and contain the virus, we need to know who has COVID-19 and who has been exposed to it. That is why we continue to look for ways to expand testing in DC and why, this week, we established a Contact Trace Force at DC Health.
