Metro Forward

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency, Metro will operate significantly reduced rail and bus service this weekend, maintaining a core network of 26 “lifeline” bus routes and providing twice-hourly rail service for our region’s essential travel needs. Essential travel includes medical providers and hospital staff, first responders, critical government functions, individuals involved in helping the community respond to COVID-19, grocery and pharmacy trips, among others. Details at https://www.wmata.com/about/news/Weekend-service-3-28-3-29.cfm

🚨🚨🚨 From Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority: ALERT: Metrobus service will be LIMITED after 5 p.m. today and all day tomorrow due to operational challenges. Visit wmata.com for list of 20 routes that WILL operate.

As we work through various operations challenges associated with the evolving pandemic response plan, we continue to make service adjustments. Beginning at 5 p.m. today and all day tomorrow, Sunday, March 22, Metrobus will operate only on our 20 highest ridership routes. Of these “lifeline” corridors, four lines will operate at 10-minute intervals: S-Line (16th Street), 50-Line (14th St.), 4-Line (Greenbelt-Twinbrook) and 70-Line (Georgia Ave.). Buses will run every 30 minutes on the remaining 16 routes.

Neighbors -

We have all received a lot of information over the past week so this is my best attempt to try to consolidate key FAQs and resources. But please note that the most up-to-date and exhaustive source about the COVID-19 response in DC is on the District’s site: https://coronavirus.dc.gov

What we do know is that our seniors and immunocompromised are at higher risk and it is crucial that we all practice social distancing as a preventive measure and if you have any potential exposure, please self-quarantine and if you have symptoms PLEASE try to get tested.

Mayor Bowser will adjust the District of Columbia Government’s operating status beginning TODAY (Monday, March 16), through Tuesday, March 31, to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). You can see all of the details of those changes here: https://coronavirus.dc.gov/release/during-modified-dc-government-operations-many-services-still-operating

With schools closed, there is a need to make sure that we our students are still receiving access to the meals they would receive in school.

The District will provide FREE meals to ALL YOUTH/STUDENTS at ALL SITES weekdays from Monday, March 16, through Tuesday, March 31, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. NO ID needed.

These sites are open to ALL but these are options located in Ward 1:
Columbia Heights Education Campus, 3101 16th St NW
Benjamin Banneker Academic High School, 800 Euclid St NW
Cardozo High School, 1200 Clifton St NW
The Next Step Public Charter School, 3047 15th St NW

Empowerk12 has created a map to help find meal locations - these include both DCPS and public charter schools and will serve meals to ALL STUDENTS, regardless of the school they attend: https://empowerk12.org/student-meals-covid-19

Next week, DC Public Schools will begin distance learning and will start that March 24th to March 31st.

Not everyone in our community has internet access - please help SPREAD THE WORD through your networks that:

Comcast is helping residents stay connected during the Coronavirus situation and have extended Internet Essentials for FREE for 2 months to DCPS and PCS families that qualify starting Monday, March 16. https://internetessentials.com/covid19

There are also two dedicated phone numbers 1-855-846-8376 for English and 1-855-765-6995 for Spanish. New customers will receive an easy to use self-install-kit.

Xfinity WiFi hotspots are available to anyone who needs them for FREE – including non-Xfinity subscribers. For a map of Xfinity WiFi hotspots, visit www.xfinity.com/wifi.

Once at a hotspot, folks should select the “xfinitywifi” network name in the list of available hotspots and then launch a browser.

DC Public Library will be closed through March 31st but don't worry - they have a huge array of ebooks, movies, and even online learning opportunities through their GoDigital that you can access here: https://www.dclibrary.org/godigital

If you don’t have a card, you can receive a temporary card online that will be good for 30 days: https://www.dclibrary.org/catalog/account/application

You can find a very long list of Education Companies Offering Free Subscriptions due to School Closings: http://www.amazingeducationalresources.com

**VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES**
We have several great organizations that have been working in the neighborhood to serve our seniors and residents across our community. During this stressful time, they are working even harder to make sure support is going where it is most needed, but they need your help!!

We Are Family DC - A long time presence in our senior community, they are in need of volunteers to help deliver and grocery assembly. They are also in need of hand sanitizer for both seniors and volunteers!

Capital Area Food Bank

Martha's Table

These are all well-established groups that have extensive experience working in our community and have instituted strict protocols to make sure everyone stays safe and healthy while getting the help they need.

Also, if you are unable to physically support any of these organizations, please consider a donation to help them with the resources they need and are providing to so many.

Thank you and please stay safe!

Reminder about tomorrow’s meeting! (Zoom info in the comments)
The redevelopment that is going on at RFK Campus is for ALL residents of the District. Join us and share your thoughts on what you would like to see at RFK. Music, speakers, buttons, stickers, posters, etc.
I live on the 1400 block of Oak Street. For the past 6 months or more, Emergency Parking Permits have taken over 3/4 of the street parking leaving none for the residents. These permits are usually for weeks or months. I've tried contacting @ancvalerie but have not heard back. Are there any consideration for the residents, who pay taxes and residential parking permits, when these permits are given out? What can we do to get our parking spaces back - start a petition? The situation is getting ridiculous. Are you running for re-election this year, Valerie Baron?
