Mount Pleasant Villagers Respond to Covid

As you probably know by now, the Covid-19 virus has mutated to become less deadly but more infectious. Happily, there is a new, bivalent vaccine available that targets both the old and the new variants of Covid. According to the CDC and the Office of the DC Mayor, now is the time to get your booster. The vaccine is free and available through pharmacies, health centers, and the DC government. For more information, contact your health care provider or the Mayor's information site. The Ward 1 vaccination site is located at 1000 U Street NW.

Covid Testing

You can get Covid testing through your health care provider or the DC government sites mentioned above. If you are unable to travel or stand in line, the Village can help. As of September, we still have a supply of rapid tests available (these are the "antigen" tests). Village volunteers are ready to deliver tests if you need them. To request a test, please call 202-573-7541 and leave a message. You can also send an e-mail requesting a test kit to NHN@mountpleasantvillage.org

 

 

We Love the Farmers Market!

Every Saturday, 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM, open year round

The Mount Pleasant Farmers' Market is open Saturdays year round from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.  No dogs or bikes please.  Given the increased local spread of the highly contagious Delta virus variant, masks & social distancing are strongly encouraged for everyone at the Market.
