“This just popped up over Georgetown/Rosslyn ish area. Haven’t noticed it before. Looks like it’s starting to be lowered already. Any idea what it is?”
At first I thought it’d be the imagining balloon we often see but this balloon looks a bit different. Anyone else see this one?

A reader reports: “A family member was at this service this morning where another congregate stood up, during service, and declared that they had been exposed to COVID-19. This is the response from the church.”
“A Note about COVID-19 from GPC
Dear Church Family,
This morning during worship, a member of GPC publicly stated that she had been exposed to COVID-19. She was seated in the sanctuary and adjacent to a number of people.
First, If you are feeling ill, or suspect you may have been in contact with somebody who has contracted COVID-19, please contact a healthcare professional immediately and refrain from coming to any church events, or any gatherings with large groups.
Here’s what we know. We have twice confirmed that this member attended the Conservative Political Action Conference at National Harbor, where public reporting stated that an attendee has since been tested positive for COVID-19. She has no knowledge of any direct contact with a person showing signs of illness. Like many CPAC attendees, she greeted and shook hands with many others, including ACU Chair Matt Schlapp, who is known to have been in contact with the person who has become ill. Currently she is not experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or any other illness, and bears a similar risk of having contracted COVID-19 as many other attendees. Read More
31st and O Street, NW via Christ Church Georgetown
From the DC Department of Health Sunday 5:09am:
“As DC Health conducts its review of the presumptive positives of COVID-19 and consults with the CDC, it has determined an individual’s visitation to Christ Church Georgetown warrants precautionary measures. Out of an abundance of caution, DC Health is recommending a temporarily pause of services at Christ Church Georgetown. We are currently conducting an intensive investigation to identify any exposures to COVID-19 that may have occurred at the church. DC Health will reach out to potentially impacted congregants and visitors as we continue to gather to more information to ensure the health and safety of the public.”
From Christ Church Georgetown:
“Christ Church, Georgetown, is a historic and vibrant community of faith in the heart of the nation’s capital. For 200 years, the people of Christ Church have sought to be a body through which the light of Christ is seen and his work is done.”
