“DC Health Announces COVID Centers Will Close on March 31”

Ed. Note: On February 28th DC Health suspended “COVID-19 Test Yourself DC self-service kiosk program as well as rapid test distribution at libraries and senior centers”.

From DC Health:

“Today, DC Health announced that the last day of operations for the COVID Centers will be Friday, March 31. The decision to close the COVID Centers comes after the District has experienced a significant drop in COVID-19 cases, high vaccination uptake, and an increase in the availability of vaccines and testing kits for at-home use. Similar actions are being taken at the federal level and by other jurisdictions around the nation. The COVID Centers were established in January 2022 to provide residents with free and easy access to COVID-19 vaccines, testing, and masks at the height of the pandemic. Today, these items are readily available at most pharmacies, doctor’s offices, and other community locations.

According to DC Health, the District’s COVID Centers provided residents with:

More than one million free masks;
More than 80,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, boosters, and flu vaccine;
More than 400,000 rapid antigen COVID-19 testing kits; and
Nearly 40,000 PCR tests.

Residents still have convenient options to obtain a COVID-19 vaccine, booster, or test kits, including through:

Local retailers and pharmacies; offers free at-home COVID-19 tests and directs people to a local free testing location; and directs people to a local free vaccination site.
