With ongoing community transmission, contact tracing is focused on positive cases associated with health care workers (including first responders), senior care facilities, correctional and detention centers, childcare facilities, and facilities serving individuals who are experiencing homelessness. Guidance has been published for healthcare providers, employers and the public to provide information on what to do if you have been diagnosed with or are a contact of someone who has COVID-19.

District residents are required to STAY AT HOME, except for an essential purpose. Residents should take the following actions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. An alcohol-based hand sanitizer can be used if soap and water are not available
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

If you have to leave home for an essential purpose, practice social distancing and stay six feet apart from others. For more information on the District’s response, visit coronavirus.dc.gov.
