COVID-19 Resource Center

The District of Columbia Hospital Association works to advance hospitals and health systems in the District by promoting policies and initiatives that strengthens our system of care.

DCHA is Closely Monitoring COVID-19

The District of Columbia is prepared to handle COVID-19 as there are many federal, state and local government agencies, hospitals, associations and related groups working together to plan and and prepare for the unexpected.

The best way to stay safe from COVID-19 is to wash hands with soap and warm water regularly, limit contact with infected persons, practice social distancing, wear a mask and cough into the crook of your elbow to decrease the risk of transmission.
