American Jewish Experiences of the Pandemic

Collected Item: “COVID Testing at DCJCC”


COVID Testing at DCJCC


DC had one of the most severe surges of omicron variant of coronavirus in the U.S. with 1,000+ cases per day at its peak. Pharmacies were sold out of tests and the D.C. government only had so many in its own supply.

I was walking to the grocery store when I passed the DC Jewish Community Center along historic 16th Street, just a mile up from the White House. Parked along side the building was a mobile covid testing van, providing much needed tests. In that moment, it brought a whole new meaning "community center" in a way I had never seen it before.
