DCHA is Closely Monitoring COVID-19

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are known to cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases. The District of Columbia is preparing to handle COVID-19 as there are many federal, state and local government agencies, hospitals, associations and related groups working together to plan and and prepare for the unexpected. DCHA is closely monitoring this issue and regulary participates in meetings and conference calls with hospitals, DC Health, CDC and other government agencies to keep abreast of developments.

The best way to stay safe from COVID-19 is to wash hands with soap and warm water regularly, limit contact with infected persons and cough into the crook of your elbow to decrease the risk of transmission.
