Recently, with DC testing sites becoming harder to access despite COVID-19 cases rising exponentially, we became a COVID-19 designated testing site. This was done in partnership with Core Response DC in an effort to help meet the needs of our at-risk clients and the community. Our first testing site brought a record number of individuals for Core Response DC, with over 600 individuals getting tested in just one day.
The testing site will continue on an as-needed basis on Thursdays, coinciding with our weekly grocery distribution and hot meals to-go so that our clients can have access to all our health services at one time.
Thank you to Core Response DC for helping us fill in the gaps of testing in Ward 1 to reach a broader community!
