right care right now
What happens if I have cold or flu-like symptoms?  

You’ve probably heard about the Coronavirus in the news. The health risk remains low for most people, but if you have cold or flu-like symptoms it is important to visit a clinic.   

If you experience any of the following, visit your doctor or a medical clinic in your neighborhood: 

Cough or sore throat 
Runny or stuffy nose 
Body aches, headache, or chills   

If you feel ill, here a few ways to stop spreading illness:   

Stay home and get lots of rest  
Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds  
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue  
Follow your doctor’s advice    

Only call 911 for serious or life-threatening emergencies. For most issues like the cold or flu, you will receive better care at a clinic. Wait times are shorter. Follow-up care is better. Also, there is probably one close by in your neighborhood.

Want a one of a kind cake?


July 2020

The walls and alleys in DC are adorned with colorful and interesting displays of the artistic, historic, and often colorful richness of the nation's capital. We feature these works of art as backgrounds for The DC Voice web site. Hopefully, it brings further recognition to those artists!

This month's image is one of my favorites and one of three that adorns North Capitol & Florida Avenues NW.
