“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday WMATA closed the brookland station “as a safety precaution” for a few hours. I saw the tweet then forgot about it and went for a run later. I saw 6 or 8 people in full hazmat great deep cleaning a metro shelter /bench. Do you know if this is something metro is just doing to metro stations, or was there some incident that caused them to clean this station and this shelter in particular? If this was a normal thing, maybe metro should tweet station is being closed for “regular cleaning” so it’s more clear.”
